Positive Behavior Support (PBS) programs define and support appropriate behaviors by explicitly teaching students about good behavior and including it as part of the curriculum.
Franklin's Key to Success
Recognition for Positive Behavior:
Recognition and reinforcement of behavior in positive ways is important. Classrooms have individual systems that promote our 4 keys. School-wide "key to success" lanyards are used. Classroom teachers, specialists, and paraprofessionals have 1-2 lanyards that are bestowed on students each Friday as recognition for a student’s ability to demonstrate all keys or one particular key with noteworthiness. These students have the privilege of wearing the lanyard all day Friday and visiting the principal at the end of the day to share their successes and receive a special “Key to Success” pencil. Additionally, assemblies are scheduled throughout the school year for a variety of events. Classroom teachers will recognize 2-3 students per class for their exceptional ability to follow the “Keys to Success”. During the student assemblies,these students’ names will be read at the beginning of the assembly and the student will earn the privilege of sitting in the front row during the event.
Parents can also use Franklin's Keys to Success at home to promote a consistent message between the school and home Franklin's Home Keys
