Reinforcing the Discipline Plan

 What can you do to reinforce the Normont School-Wide Positive Behavior Intervention Support Plan?


  • Learn and model the Normont School-wide behavior expectations.
  • Make Connections between the School-wide Behavioral Plan and your Classroom Behavior Management Plan, and behavior at home. (It creates consistency!)
  • Find opportunities daily to refer to the Guiding Principles, the Behavior Expectations, and Second Step in your lessons. (Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be a Leader)
  • Consider misbehavior as an opportunity for learning. (Will the consequence teach the student what to do next time?)
  • Look for and acknowledge students that are following the Guiding Principles and Behavior Expectations. (Verbal praise, caught being good tickets, stickers, positive note home, high five, etc)
