BEHAVIORAL TIP FROM RANDY SPRICK

Welcome back! Celebrate the New Year with high hopes for each student you teach. To help students transition from their winter holidays, refocus their attentions on positive, responsible classroom behavior. Now is the perfect time to congratulate them on their autumn accomplishments and to re-teach your expectations.

If you would like more help on communicating your expectations, visit our website.

RESULTS FROM THE FIELD – NORTH CAROLINA

Since 1999, educators in Guilford County, North Carolina have been using Foundations to create more responsible and productive schools. Recently, Renee Davis studied surveys conducted in these schools to determine whether a proactive, positive, schoolwide behavior support system makes staff and students feel safer. We'd like to share some of her results and conclusions with you.
