Building Effective Schools Together
The B.E.S.T. program (Building Effective Schools Together), is a program based on positive behavioral Intervenion supports that helps schools develop and implement positive school rules, rule teaching, and positive reinforcement systems schoolwide.
Our school developed and adopted school wide rules that were specifically taught to students. In addition, each quarter, students are chosen and recognized for outstanding or improved behavior. Along with the school wide implementation, a consistent system of documentation is used and discipline data is gathered on the computer using a program (SWIS, school wide information system) designed for ease of use. It provides outstanding reports that help to isolate particular issues and illustrate areas where we might need to focus our attention.
