Innovative Instructional Incentive Plan.
Banashak, Joan M.
The Innovative Instructional Incentive Plan represents a set of goals and action strategies for implementing the school improvement plan of the Fairway Elementary School in Miramar, Florida, where instructional time was being lost due to disruptive student behavior, and where behavioral infractions were not always dealt with quickly or consistently. This paper provides: (1) a description of the school; (2) a summary of the improvement planning process; (3) an executive summary stating the problem, summarizing the analysis of the problem, and stating intervention goals; (4) a time line for implementation; (5) a statement of the school's code of discipline; (6) descriptions of six superhero caricatures that were designed to illustrate concepts in the discipline code, and were portrayed by means of lifesize cardboard cutouts which were strategically placed throughout the school; (7) a brief description of the incentive awards program for positive behavior and good work; (8) a brief outline of the referral process; and (9) a description of the link between earned incentives and interdisciplinary clubs established to enrich the curriculum and further reward students. Concluding materials describe program implementation month by month for the first year, and outcomes anticipated for the second. (RH)
