Today's schools are facing challenges that are forcing them to think in a new paradigm. As school resources decrease, demographics get more diverse, class sizes increase, discipline issues occur more often, and accountability for student achievement steadily rises, SOLAR may very well be the support system that schools are looking for!
SOLAR - or "Solution Oriented Learning, Accountability, and Restoration" - is a classroom and school-wide behavior management model that focuses on the following:
Building a "Culture of CHARACTER"
Developing creative behavior interventions that help students truly learn from mistakes, take accountability for choices, and restore any damaged relationships
Implementing Restorative Practices in behavior interventions
Provides an infinite number of interventions that can be used for behavior infractions.
Alignment to Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
Evolves and adapts to changing needs and ideas of the school.
Providing a structure for schools to design a SOLAR model based on the individual needs of the school
Reduce discipline referrals, including the number of repeat offenders
Provide a means for schools to address disproportionate disciplinary referrals for students with disabilities, varied socio-economic backgrounds, and diverse ethnic backgrounds.
Put simply, SOLAR can help your school find the success it is looking for! Please explore our website for more information, then contact us! We look forward to helping you chart your course!
