Behavior Plan                    Revised  July 2009

Dear Parents,

          As your child enters first grade more structure demands will be expected from him/her.  This is why I have developed a discipline plan that shows how your child is behaving weekly. Sadly, I have to assign a grade (S, N, or U) weekly. This plan has been used for the last several years and it has worked very well.  My plan has been designed on previous class problems and how the School Discipline Committee is expecting all students to behave.     
         Since first grade is more structured than Kindergarten a behavior plan will be used.  I firmly believe that if I have the child’s full attention he/she will make great progress this year. First grade has many things to learn.  I will try to make learning fun and interesting, but the child’s attention must be on the lesson.
        Time out will be used for poor behavior. My Time out for the child will be to isolate him/her from the class, but the place will be located in the room, so he/she can hear and complete the lesson.  If the poor behavior continue then the child will miss recess to  write the rule he/she is breaking.  I will begin using the Behavior Plan starting the 2nd week of the 1st six week period. The first week of school  I will go over this plan with the students, so they will know what I expect from each of them. PBS forms may be used as needed.
          Each week the behavior grade will be based on 17 points. The final grade will be based on 102 points for the six week period.  The Behavior Report will be sent home weekly stapled to the test papers.  The grading scale is as follows:

    0  = 100  S           -4  = 76 N        -7 =  59  U     -10 =  41 U     -13  = 24 U                -16 =  6  U

   -1  =  94  S           -5  = 71  N        -8 =  53 U     -11  = 35  U     -14  =18  U                -17 = 0  U

   -2  = 88  S            -6  = 65  U        -9  = 47 U      -12 = 29  U     -15  = 12 U

   -3  = 82  S                                               

          The weekly grades will be averaged to get the final grade for the report card.  The grade for the report card is S, N, or U.

          When a child is sent to the office for a minor or major infraction, the child’s conduct grade will be a U on the report card for the six weeks.  A minor or major infraction will override the teacher grade point average for the child's six weeks grade.

    Child’s Name_________________________________

I have read the Behavior Management Plan that will be used in Ms. Rickey Menard’s class. I understand that if my child is sent to the office and the problem is a major infraction, my child’s conduct grade on the report card will be a U.  A minor or major infraction will override the teacher grade point average for the child for the six weeks.
