A School-Wide Approach to Behavior Management: The Demerit Database

Topics: School Culture and Classroom Management Practices
Mission: Boston Preparatory Charter Public School utilizes rigorous curriculum, extended academic time, and a range of supports for children and families to prepare 6th-12th grade students to succeed in college. An environment structured around scholarship and personal growth cultivates students’ virtues of courage, compassion, integrity, perseverance, and respect.”
Goals: 1. To tailor Boston Prep’s internally-designed discipline database to meet the needs of a Boston Public School
Summary: Demerit Database Sharing. Boston Preparatory Charter Public School (BPCPS) firmly believes that a key to its success has been the establishment and implementation of a school-wide approach to behavior management. In order to assist teachers in faithfully implementing the school’s code of conduct, BPCPS designed and developed a demerit database to track student behavior infractions. BPCPS was approached by the school leader of Orchard Gardens Pilot School for assistance in setting up the demerit database to meet the needs of her school. Staff at BPCPS have been working with administrators and staff at Orchard Gardens Pilot School to tailor the existing database for implementation at the Boston Public School. When complete, the demerit database will be used by the entire school community at Orchard Gardens Pilot School to faithfully implement the school’s code of conduct across the school.
