                          Daily Behavior Records Explanation

The school will have daily data sheets individualized for each student and will also utilize ClassDojo
for additional data collection and communication with families. The ClassDojo program is fully
customizable for each student. It easily documents student feedback for IEPs, PBIS, and other needs.
The IEP data will still be tracked on paper data sheets and ClassDojo will give an overall look about a
student’s behavior throughout each day. Each student’s profile can only be accessed by the student,
their parents, and the school staff involved.
The ClassDojo program is fully customizable for each student. It easily documents student feedback
for IEPs, PBIS, and other needs. The data which in the past has been tracked using the student point
sheets will be programmed into each student’s individual profile. Each student profile can only be
accessed by the student, their parents, and the school staff involved.
The behavior tracking will provide feedback on the following behaviors dependent on student’s
individual needs and program needs.


Data collection and evaluation is necessary to best reflect each student’s progress, IEP goals and
objectives. Our data collection system will allow the school as a whole to reflect on behaviors that
impede individual students from returning to their home district.
ClassDojo is a tool that provides teachers and other staff who work with individual  students data
                                                                            Positive behavior an individu

Elementary/Middle School/High School
This % is measured through the opportunity to earn 26 positive behavior marks daily. Using
ClassDojo, behavioral data will be recorded approximately every 15 minutes for each student. If a
negative behavior has been marked during that 15 minute time frame, students will not earn a
positive mark. The ClassDojo platform uses this data to determine a daily behavioral percentage.
Students’ positive marks recorded on ClassDojo will be utilized with the School of Excellence token
economy. Each positive mark earned will be worth the equivalent of $.05 in the token economy to be
spent at point store offered through the school.
Students will have an opportunity to view their graph daily to monitor their own progress.
Individualization for specific students
Some teachers, especially in the LIBERTY elementary and all COLA classrooms will adapt the platform
to individualize even more for their students. These students will have specific plans written by their
classroom teachers and other team members defining how the student’s behavioral data is collected.

FAC-Positive Reinforcement
Students’ positive marks will continue to be used to determine eligibility for participation in school
wide Friday Afternoon Club.
Teachers will help parents sign-up for their ClassDojo accounts. If students start later in the year, the
classroom teacher will send an invitation to join ClassDojo via email or through text.
Elementary/Middle School/High School-Data collection system
   ● Each student will have a behavioral tracking sheet individualized to the student’s behavioral IEP
     goals along with any other behaviors of concern.
   ● Behavioral data sheets will be weekly unless a specific behavior needs its own tracking sheet.
   ● Data sheets need to include:
        o Behaviors
        o How each behavior should be tracked (tally event/occurrence, percentage, duration
        o Daily Dates
        o Definition of behaviors tracked to ensure consistency across staff
   ● Data sheets will be approved by the behavioral team
               o At the beginning of the school year
               o When an IEP has occurred
               o When a new student starts
               o If there are any updates to the data sheets
   ● Each staff member will have a binder that includes all behavioral data sheets and ECMPs
   ● Behavioral data will be graphed by classroom staff daily
   ● Graphs should include
        o One sheet for each behavior being tracked
o Dates and the way it was tracked (tally event/occurrence, percentage, duration etc.)
      o Trend Lines
      o Phase change lines for any changes (Interventions, ECMPs, medication, etc.)
      o Notes for any absences. There should be data for each week with the exception of
        absences. Do not put a 0 unless the data point is zero.
     o Dojo percentages as one of the graphs for Pathways students. Staff will determine for
        IEP meetings the percentage of gold days, green days, yellow days and red days-see
        section below for colors.
● Data should be entered into graphs daily
● Graphs should be brought to IEP meetings.
● The behavioral team will review graphs at least monthly to determine progress, success of
  interventions, consistent data collection, etc.

Parents/Guardians are invited by classroom teachers to attend the PBIS Awards Assemblies when
their child has been selected as student of the month. All parents and guardians are invited to watch
the school talent show. School carnivals are only for the students who attend the School of
Excellence. Parents and other family members are not invited to attend as this is a specific event
designed to allow students to practice some levels of independence and positive behaviors they have
been working on.
PBIS team will meet monthly for planning of activities.

                                               Token Economy-All Grades
Students earn nickels/points for appropriate behavior during the day in all settings throughout the school. The terms nickel/point
are equivalent. The term nickel is used to relate to the amount of money students earn to be utilized at the point store. 1 positive
point=1 nickel.
●   Classroom staff will record and add nickels to student debit cards for positive marks earned on ClassDojo.
    ●   RISE cards (worth $.50) can be earned throughout the day for positive behavior-these are added to the debit cards.

A student who is meeting most of the daily expectations should earn at least 20 nickels per day. Once a nickel is given, it is never
taken away.

There are 26 opportunities to earn points for positive behaviors in a day. In order to determine a student’s daily percentage, the
total points earned can be divided by 26.

     88% and above                77%-88%                    69%-76%                 68% and below

Debit cards with nickels and RISE cards earned are used to purchase items that are incentive/reinforcing for individual students,
based on the school-wide token economy.

    ●   Debit cards can be used to shop at the point store, participate in school-wide auctions, shop at the annual rummage sale
        etc. Students can “bank” their money to save for larger items or events.
    ●   Classrooms will shop 1 time per day as determined by the classroom teacher and the point store schedule. If students
        purchase a snack, when that snack is eaten is determined by the classroom teacher. Students will be given the
        opportunity to go with their class to shop if they have earned the opportunity through displaying expected behaviors.
    ●   Each classroom will have 1 designated day per week when their students have the opportunity to shop for non-food
        items from the point store.
    Rise Cards can be given/earned for any pro-social and pro-academic behavior. Here are some of the more common
    behaviors that earn nickels/Rise cards:

    ●   Following directions immediately
    ●   Completing work
    ●   Attempting work that is challenging without exhibiting negative behaviors
    ●   Raising their hand to speak or move about the room
    ●   Ignoring peer’s inappropriate behaviors
    ●   Staying in their assigned seat or area
    ●   Cleaning up or getting off the computer immediately when asked
    ●   Making positive comments about self or others
    ●   Returning parent communications
    ●   Assignment completion

Points are given every 15 minutes. Staff will choose the most impactful category when selecting a point or deduction of point.
When a student has not received a mark for a behavior listed in the box above, they earn a positive point.

    ●   A student who sleeps or refuses to work during a period does not earn points for that period. Staff adjusts the ClassDojo to
        accurately record that data when sleeping does not reflect a goal behavior. If sleeping is habitual or a goal, staff will mark
        the sleeping deduction and it will impact their daily totals.
    ●   If a student is tardy or leaves early with a valid parental excuse, their daily point total will be adjusted to reflect the amount
        of time they were at school.
    ●   Individualized behaviors will be tracked on daily data collection sheets.
    ●   A student who exhibits any of the following behaviors is exempt from participating in FAC 1 or FAC 2 for the week:
            o   Physically aggressive act directed towards a peer/staff member
            o   2 or more threats of bodily harm toward a peer/staff member in one day or chronic (3 or more incidents per week)
                intimidation, posturing and/or bullying
            o   Property Destruction of school, staff or peer property. Dependent on the level and frequency of destruction, staff
                and administration will meet to determine if the destruction is at a level that warrants an additional consequence.
            o   Walking off campus or going to another location other than that assigned/approved/supervised (out front, quad,
                commons…) without permission.
            o   Seclusion/Restraint
            o   A behavior that results in a criminal charge
            o   Passing any contraband item to a peer (notes, cigarettes, blades, technology…)
            o   Stealing property of peers, staff or school


Earned Daily Activities
    ●   Students that complete all of their work, have no exclusions (see poster) and do not get sent to a recovery room during
        each separate block earn the next reinforcement scheduled throughout the day (point store, recess, and other earned
    ●   Earned activities are privileges for students who exhibit safe and productive behavior. If a child does not earn recess,
        point store, or other earned activity they should not be allowed to play a game, play with a toy, get on the computer or
        have access to teacher attention. They should be working towards earning the next activity.

●    If a child has an altercation at recess or point store, does not follow the rules/expectations or has an issue lining up, they
         will miss the following recess or point store (aligned to the reinforcer they misbehaved at).
    ●    Receive 77% of points for the time period prior to the activity.

Visitors to Schools and Programs

The Pikes Peak BOCES (PPBOCES) will make reasonable efforts to accommodate requests to visit the PPBOCES schools and
educational programs, yet also recognizes concerns for the welfare of students. Therefore, the PPBOCES limits visitors to:

1.    Parents/guardians of current students;
2.    Parents/guardians of prospective students;
3.    Other family members of current students who are approved by the student’s
      parent/guardian; and
4.    Other persons invited by the PPBOCES for official business purposes.

To ensure visitors do not disrupt the educational process or other PPBOCES operations and that no unauthorized persons enter
the PPBOCES buildings, all visitors shall report to the administrative office immediately when entering a PPBOCES school or
building. Authorized visitors may: (1) be required to sign in and out; (2) be given name-tags to wear identifying themselves as
visitors; and (3) be accompanied by a PPBOCES employee for some or all of the visit. PPBOCES administrators may approve
additional building procedures pertaining to visitors to preserve a proper and safe learning environment.

Unauthorized persons shall not loiter on PPBOCES property at any time. Law enforcement authorities may be called to
enforce this policy provision.

Visiting the PPBOCES is a privilege, not a right, which may be limited, denied or revoked by a PPBOCES administrator or designee
based on considerations of student and/or staff safety, efficient PPBOCES operations, maintenance of a proper educational
environment, or failure to comply with this policy.
