Faculty CommitmentDuring a professional learning community meeting, Larry Savery, the Assistant Principal for StudentServices, led faculty members in constructing their 3-5 positively stated classroom rules. These ruleswere aligned with the SWPBIS expectations but grounded in what the teachers thought were the mainproblems in their classroom. The teachers also thought of their 4 step consequence ladder, with thereferral being the result of the 4th minor infraction. Lastly, they thought of their rewards and incentives.These rules, consequences and incentives were posted in every classroom and checked for complianceby the Student Services office. In addition, teachers were required to modify the Minor Infraction Formwith their rules on it so that they were clearly implementing their rules and using them to manage theirclassroom.INSERT DATES AND SLIDES FROM PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Lesson Plans for Teaching Rules and ExpectationsStudents will learn the expectations through a series of videos that were created by team members andtheir students. The videos focus on particular areas, including the library, hallway and offices. Thesepublic areas seem to be the most confusing. Teachers will also model the behaviors expected in theirclassrooms through their individual classroom management plans.The Advisory classroom will also provide an avenue for ancillary topics to be discussed. These include:dealing with grief, handling conflict respectfully, planning for the future, de-escalation, self-esteem, actionplanning for multiple tasks, etc. While these sessions do not directly deal with expectations, there is nodoubt that the behaviors discussed will directly impact the SWPBIS expectations.
