Our EBD program doesn't...

Clip to ScrapBook #7

My program has chosen as a collective (3 teachers & 1 school psych) has chosen not to send home point sheets. We found that many parents would ignore the positives and just focus on the negatives. I use class messenger to communicate with all my parents. I can see if they read the message and I can also send out messages to the whole class or just the one parent.

I have one student whose parent would get the daily communication last year and would then double the consequences at home for behavior that happened at school. This was not major behaviors, but minor adjustments to their points during the day. It did nothing to improve the students behavior and actually made it worse.

Communication is a double-edged sword. I tend to only communicate with parents the good, and the major negative behaviors, not the everyday stuff we have go on in the room.
