Goal

To receive funding to support our schoolwide PBIS initiatives. We have monthly PBIS activities to support positive behavior as well as a school store that students can access on a weekly basis.  

 

What will be done with my students

Our PBIS committee has scheduled out monthly "team" meetings as well as quarterly competitions to promote PBIS initiatives like remaining in area, decreasing major referrals, and increasing positive points earned. The money from this grant will help fund these initiatives by purchasing items and reinforcers that students reported they liked in a survey completed at the beginning of the year. Our quarterly events will include a school-wide ice cream social, "snow ball challenge," "eggstravaganza," and a field day at the end of the year. In addition to our monthly and quarterly events, we have a school store that we utilize to motivate students to meet their daily behavioral and academic goals. Students are able to use their points to "shop" on a weekly basis from many items ranging from food items to games to electronics. At this time our total budget for PBIS is $700, to include our school store, which is not enough to support our initiatives throughout the year. We will depend on staff and community donations in order to ensure all of these events are carried out. This grant money would fund supplemental materials like food items, games for school-wide activities, and materials needed for field day.  

 

Benefits to my students

By providing motivators that are important to students, we have a better chance of increasing positive behaviors in the day-to-day setting. Increasing positive behaviors means increased academic engagement and progress in their coursework.  

 

Describe the Students

Richard L Sanders School serves students K-12 and Extended Transition. All have been identified as having severe emotional and behavioral issues. Many are cognitively low-functioning, have mental health diagnoses, and experience behavioral difficulties which impedes their learning. A large number of our students are economically disadvantaged, live in single-parent homes, live with non-parental guardians, or are foster care students living in group homes. Our school does not have the typical supports most schools enjoy including a PTA or Family-Community Liason, and therefore we rely heavily on staff donations and grants. Our PBIS program is in need of additional funds to support our PBIS initiatives so that we can provide monthly incentives for students who meet a specific criteria set by the PBIS committee. This grant would support those initiatives and our Level System, which is our school-wide behavior management system. Our students respond positively when we are able to have incentives that they desire. Through a survey process we are able to identify what types of incentives motivate different students. We try to offer those incentives to keep students interested and moving forward through the Level System.
