Lincoln Laker Behavior Expectations

In order for 550 people to live, learn and work together in a productive, safe environment, appropriate behavior is required. The educational purpose of the school is accomplished best in a climate of student behavior, which is socially acceptable and conducive to the learning and teaching process. Student behavior, which disrupts this process or infringes upon the rights of other individuals, will not be tolerated. The school system, the school and each class has established realistic and reasonable guidelines for all students to follow so that learning can take place without interruption. Each classroom teacher will explain his/her classroom rules and guidelines for shared areas.

Our school has implemented PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports). PBIS provides an operational framework for improving student behavior outcomes and ensuring all students have access to the most effective and accurately implemented behavioral practices and interventions possible. PBIS is not a curriculum, intervention, or practice, but is a decision making framework for improving important academic and behavior out comes for all students.

A team with representation from all aspects of a school meets once a month to review school wide data and make decisions to support the students’ learning environment.

At the beginning of the school year, all students will participate in a review of or teaching of the 3 Lincoln Lakers Expectations. Those 3 expectations are RESPONSIBLE, RESPECTFUL and SAFE. The behavior matrix was created for what behavioral expectations should look like, sound like, and feel like in different school areas.

Green Day

At the start of each day students have a green card. If the student has to be talked with about behavior they switch to a yellow card which is a warning. When the student has another incident they go to orange which is the “Thinking Chair”. This allows for the student to take a break and regain self control. The next step in the discipline process is pink where the student goes next door to a buddy room to take a break. The last two steps are blue and red, blue is a call home and red is an office referral. Staff has discussed this with their students and it is implemented school wide for consistency. At our monthly assembly students are recognized for having 80% or better green days for the month.
