Align all your incentives, initiatives, and programs (Academic and behavioral)
Create your own intervention triangle and place all your supports in the corresponding tiers
Focus on data-based decision making
Use your TFI to plan for the next school year

When we do return to our buildings, all staff members will be adjusting back into "normal" life-whatever that may look like. Focus on simple, effective strategies when discussing the responses to behavior.
1. 5 to 1 Ratio - 5 positive comments to each negative or corrective comment
2. Behavior specific praise that is tied to your school-wide expectations
Formula: 1. Student's name, 2. name the behavior, 3. link to expectation
"Johnny, you arrived to class on time, that's being responsible."
Focus on praising the behavior, not the student as a person.
We want students to know exactly why they are being praised or receiving an incentive.
