** POSITIVE BEHAVIOR SUPPORT **

Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn are all components of the Positive Behavior Support program in place in the Rolla School District. Being prepared for class is part of the Ready to Learn aspect. As students get older, this component changes from simply having a notebook and pencil every day to managing multiple classes and outside activities. At the high school level, students have many demands placed on them every day. In order to keep all of these things straight, students are asked to be organized. One of the ways to help with this is by ensuring students have and use a planner. Steven Covey, author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, states that people who habitually use a planner are far more successful than those who don’t. Using a planner ensures things that are important are not pushed off to the last minute. There are some great planners at local stores, online, or the use of a calendar on their phone. Whatever tool works for them is highly recommended. The beginning of a new year is a great time to get your teen a planner and encourage them to use it daily.
