maple leaf 5-12. Monitoring Disrespectful Behavior

Any policy that is implemented needs to be monitored. Monitoring will take many forms:

1. Monitoring student behavior

A sample monitoring form is on the next page. It assumes that many of the strategies will have been used to both address the problem and to find a positive solution. These notes are kept by the teacher. If the principal, or parents are involved, they also get copies. This way everyone involved is aware of what is going on. This type of system is useful because over time a specific student's file can be pulled and patterns can be looked for. If patterns are found, then pro-active strategies can be developed to help that student learn what "triggers" him.
2. Monitoring information going home
Some information does not have to go home, others must. Often this is student and/or situational dependent.
3. Monitoring the overall success of the policy
In order to see if what is being implemented works, there needs to be a monitoring component. This is often built into the Action Plans.
4. Monitoring changes in teacher/student/administrator/etc. behaviors
Staff meetings are great places to have a "social" component where problems with the system are discussed and alterations suggested.
