RAHWAY — Roosevelt Elementary School in Rahway kicked off the school-wide Positive Behavior Support in Schools program.
The goal of the program is to create positive learning environments that encourage and support pro-social student behavior at the school wide, classroom, and individual student levels using current research and validated practices in positive behavior support. Students attended grade level assemblies to explain the purpose of the program.
School-wide behavioral expectations were created for different areas of the school that apply to all students, all staff, in all settings. Following the assembly, classroom teachers defined and taught expectations and routines for the different areas of the school. A school-wide recognition system has been established to acknowledge positive social behaviors.
Students receive tickets when they are caught exhibiting positive behavior. Tickets are drawn weekly and prizes are awarded. Tickets are then put in grade level bins. Monthly prizes are awarded. At the end of the month, all tickets will be placed in a universal bin, when the bin is full, Roosevelt School will host a school-wide celebration.
