The behavioral component is a positive behavior interventions and support framework in which school site personnel establish schoolwide expectations for student conduct. The critical component here is that school staff teach all students the expectations for each key setting in the building (e.g., classroom, hallways, cafeteria). Next, students have multiple practice opportunities where teachers model the expectations and then coach students on how to demonstrate them. Students demonstrating expectations are reinforced with behavior-specific praise. The overall goal is to provide students with a behavioral skills that allow time for teaching and learning. Investing time in this instructional approach to behavior by explicitly teaching school wide expectations for behavior upfront, teachers will devote less time to addressing problem behaviors and may experience less stress (as will students) in the learning environment.
Farley Expectations: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible
As part of the CI3T plan, students earn tickets by following the school-wide expectations: being safe, respectful, and responsible. Behavior-specific praise is given when students earn a Farley ticket. Students then have multiple opportunities throughout the week, both in their classrooms and throughout the school, to be recognized and rewarded for meeting school-wide expectations.
Each week, Farley students participate in an all school assembly to recognize safe, respectful, and responsible behavior throughout the school. If a child's ticket is drawn, they have the opportunity to select a prize off of the prize cart. The goal is for all students to be recognized at least once during the school year.
If you wish to donate items to the prize cart, we will gladly accept items such as toys (new or like new condition), school supplies, individually packaged candy or chips, or other items that students would be interested in earning. If you would like to donate items, please drop them off at the front office.
