Level System and Earned Rewards

Progressions School Positive Behavior Point & Level System

Point System
All students enrolled at Progressions School are expected to carry a point sheet at all times and participate in the point/level system. The point system is an effective measure of how well a student is progressing towards his or her IEP goals, personal behavior goals and possible reintegration to their home school.

Earning Points
The point system is a measure of a student’s ability to display pro-social behaviors in the program, and a gauge to provide immediate and positive feedback. All students start at Level 1 Day 1 and receive 1000 points upon entrance to the program. Students are able to earn points when they are displaying pro-social behaviors in all periods throughout the school day.

The pro-social behaviors expected are:
• On Time/Prepared/Homework – Students will be seated and ready to begin class with
expected materials, including writing utensils, paper, assignment book, and
homework.
• Class Participation/Work Completion – Students will be attentive during class
discussions, activities and presentations. During individual seat work students
will be actively involved in completing assignments with a degree of accuracy
reflective of their abilities.
• Following Instructions – Students will comply with oral/written instruction given by
staff with limited or minimal redirection.
• Accepting Feedback – Students will respond to oral/written feedback about academic
or social behavior in a manner that is respectful to both him/herself and the
individual providing the feedback.
• Respectful – Both verbal and non-verbal communication should be expressed in a
manner that demonstrates respect for self and others.
• Language/Topics of Conversation – Socially acceptable, appropriate, non-threatening
language and topics of conversation is required and expected at Progressions School.
• Personal Space/Boundaries – Students are expected to keep hands and feet to
themselves and respect the personal boundaries of others. In addition, public
displays of affection will not be tolerated.
• Common Area Behavior – Students are expected to exhibit calm and orderly behavior
while passing between classes, during lunch, and in all common areas.

Points are earned on a scale from 0 – 10 for each column on the point sheet. Each column represent a class period.

POINT VALUES
Between 0-5 Behavior was not demonstrated at all, or in unacceptable manner
6 Behavior was minimally demonstrated, equivalent to 60% on grading scale
7 Behavior was demonstrated to an average degree
8 Represents good behavior/production
Between 9-10 Behavior exceeds expectations, which would be equivalent to an ‘A’ grade
