Our Behavior Support System Tiers / Elements:
WHAT IS TIER 1?
TIER 1 is universal supports for the entire school's students. It consists of the School-wide Behavior Management Plan - teaching school-wide expectations, active supervision and monitoring in common areas, positive reinforcement for all students, pro-social and consistent discipline strategies, etc. Other Universal Supports - Effective academic support, effective classroom management, Student Code of Conduct, Rights and Responsibilities, School-wide Bullying Prevention, Safe and Drug Free Schools, Character Education, School-wide Social Skills Training, etc.
Tier 1 support puts systems in place for the entire school, hallways, libraries, offices, and other common areas, along with the classroom. By having standard behavioral expectations, students and staff know the expectations.
The Humboldt Bay Area School Climate Project has worked to implement Tier 1 in all of it's elementary schools and have students and staff use it consistently and with fidelity.
