Positive Behavior Support

Kent County Secondary Intensive Learning Center
Positive Behavior Support (PBS)

The staff of Kent County Secondary Intensive Learning Center foremost is focused on assisting students to learn appropriate behavior and coping skills as well as academic content in the classroom. The school-wide expectations include: 1) Show Respect, 2) Be There, Be Prepared and 3) Follow Directions. These expectations are to be carried out in all areas of the school. To help students visualize what these expectations should look like in all parts of the program, the Positive Behavior Support staff created posters displayed in eight (8) areas- Bus, Bus Loading Area, Classroom, Hallway, Bathroom, Cafeteria, Assembly/Field Trip, and Emergency Situations with an explanation for each area.

Students are also supported through the use of a daily point sheet which allows them the right to earn a successful day by staff awarding a zero or one to each fifteen minute division of the day within the three school-wide expectations and one area individualized for each student. These successful days, in turn, allow them the opportunity to progress through a level system.  The following levels pertain to both programs: Level One is five successful days; Level Two is achieved with 15 Days, Level Three with 15 days and Level 4 with 10 days.

At each successive level, more privileges are earned and incentives increase. As a student nears the completion of the program, a meeting is planned with their home district to transition them back to their school of origin.

During his/her tenure in one of the programs, students also receive other services necessary to help them succeed and maintain a positive forward movement on their return to their school of origin.
