CCS Character Accountability and Recording
It is our desire to coach each student toward continual improvement and build him/her up toward righteousness. We do this by establishing a positive environment as we catch students doing well and correct students in need of improvement. During the course of a week, teachers witness both good and bad behavior. Examples of godly character will be highlighted in the classroom and shared through positive notes, classroom recognition, etc.
Teachers are also committed to help students when they have behavioral issues that need improvement. If a child is observed doing something that is in opposition to one of our behavioral standards, the teacher will start the correction process with words. If the behavior is beyond a simple correction or the behavior continues after being corrected with words, the student will be sent to “Break” and asked to respond to a series of questions to help the child think through the infraction. If the behavior continues, the teacher will meet with the child’s parents and/or principal to design a heart-based behavior improvement plan that will help him/her make better choices and develop better patterns in life.
Teachers will use Renweb to record behavior. At the end of each quarter, character will be recorded (based on the point system described below) using the terms Acceptable (AC) or Needs Improvement (NI). Our behavior standards are outlined by Love, Honor and Obedience. Each category has specific behaviors for accountability according to the following outline.
Love: 1 Cor. 13 ... Kindness, Self-Control and Truthfulness
Honor: The Sermon on the Mount – Matt. 5, 6 & 7 ... Respect
Obey: John 15:1-17 ... Come (Be Prepared), Receive (Listen), Respond (Acknowledge Instruction),
Act (Persevere), Report (Demonstrate Completion)
Each student will begin with 5 points in each category each week. For every behavioral violation that is recorded in Renweb, the student will lose one point in the appropriate category. Points will be tallied at the end of the week and then compiled at the end of the quarter to determine the direction of the students’ progress.
Points per Week Quarterly Points Quarterly Report
4 -5 points 39 – 45 quarterly points Acceptable - AC
Less than 4 points Less than 38 quarterly points Needs Improvement – NI
The goal of our behavior accountability is to address the heart of the child so heart change can happen. Our desire is to create a positive environment and foster a culture of honor. If our students embrace godly character traits, their life will have a great foundation.
