Student supports and interventions are offered for any child who demonstrates a need. Whether academically, behaviorally, or emotionally, we implemented layered and tiered interventions and supports in all areas. Often a temporary plan is needed and sometimes a more permanent plan is put in place to ensure their academic and/or emotional success. Supports can include:
Within our Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) model, we use a team approach to collaborate with different school providers and a students family. Additional supports may be accessed in this model by students with disabilities through an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or a Section 504 Plan.
For more information about our system of support, please contact the office to talk with one of our student support team members.
PBIS is a system that we use to promote positive behavior, encourage students to do the right thing, and acknowledge those that are meeting our high expectations for behavior.
Dora Moore has implemented a system called the Golden Eagle Award. To celebrate our core values of Community, Kindness, Curiosity, and Excellence, teachers will nominate students each week! The nomination will include a description of how the student was portraying the core value, and a raffle of all nominated students will occur to further celebrate the student.
Each individual classroom and/or grade-level will implement a positive behavior incentive system for individual classroom communities. Positive rewards will be used to leverage and highlight positive behavior, transitions, academic risks, social-emotional intelligence, use of academic and/or target language, and attendance. Positive incentives are a tool for teachers to encourage positive choices and to create a dialogue between students, families, and teachers. Positive incentives are never be used to punish, exclude, or threaten.
