This behavior management system is based on earning points to progress up the ladder of success.  Students are motivated to move up the ladder to earn school store and high levels.


Each student will have a daily TALID sheet where points are earned twice a period for the following behaviors:


Task- Student will remain on task by completing assignments and participating in group activities.


Area- Student and their possessions will remain in assigned areas.


Language- Students will use appropriate language and gestures.


Interactions- Students will treat others with respect at all times.


Directions- Students will follow staff directions at all times.


Points will be added up at the end of the day and an overall percentage will be given for the student’s behaviors.  At the end of the day, students earning their daily goal will move up a level on the success ladder.

 Work Units

The students will also earn “work units” in which they will use to spend at the school store.  These work units are an assessment of the student’s effort in the given class work.  The students will be assessed using a 3, 2, 1, 0 program.


3- The student will earn 3 points if they completed all of their given work and participated in class and/or group work.


2- The student will earn 2 points if they completed most but not all of their given work and participated in class and/or group work.


1-The student will earn 1 point if they completed part but not all of their given work and participated in class and/or group work and did not put forth effort.


0- The student will earn a 0 if they did not complete any work for the period and they did not participate in class or group work.
