"Good Citizen" Program.
Placer Hills Union Elementary School District, Meadow Vista, CA.
THE FOLLOWING IS THE FULL TEXT OF THIS DOCUMENT: The "Good Citizen" Program was developed for many reasons: to keep the campus clean, to reward students for improvement, to reward students for good deeds, to improve the total school climate, to reward students for excellence, and to offer staff members a method of reward for positive reinforcement. The grade levels for this program can be anywhere from K-8. All staff members can be included in this program including teachers, aides, custodians, administration, secretaries, and other personnel. Items needed are tickets to be given to students. We give 25 tickets to each staff member every two weeks. The tickets should have a place for the students to put their name on the front and the staff member's name on the back. Some rewards: food coupons, posters, records, pencils, binders, skating tickets, bowling tickets. It is necessary to get the cooperation of local businesses for free rewards or use student body and school funds for purchases. The following outline describes how the "Good Citizen" Program is implemented: (1) Raffle or reward tickets are distributed to staff members every two weeks (about 25-30 for each person). (2) Staff members will sign the back of each ticket and give tickets to students as deserved. (3) When students receive a ticket, they will sign it and place it in the raffle container in the office (or a centrally located area). (4) Drawings will be held every two weeks (or as planned). Winners will be listed and/or announced. (5) All tickets will be replaced in the raffle container. Students who receive a ticket will continue to have a chance at every drawing, the theory being the more tickets earned the better the chance of being rewarded. This document was selected by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Task Force on Public Confidence as descriptive of a promising practice or exemplary project worthy of highlighting for the California educational community.
