Seaford Middle School is a part of the Seaford School District in Delaware. They follow PBIS for behavior management and designed their behavior rubric categories around their mission statement:
“Our students will Try & Succeed, Respond & Respect, and Accept & Advocate.”
Under each category, students can earn either positive points or, if it’s a negative behavior, it is tracked in LiveSchool’s data reports.
To highlight specific behaviors, the Seaford Middle School team selects a behavior for the month. During that month, students earn 10 points every time they are recognized for that specific behavior. Typically, students earn one point per behavior, so this is a big (and motivating) increase!
In one year, students at Seaford were recognized for more than 126,000 behaviors and redeemed 5,000 rewards.
