want to ditch clip chart though school wide expectation

How do you ditch the clip chart when it is a school-wide expectation? Do you hang it up and just refuse to use it? When a student is written up, it is expected that the teacher list steps taken, which is supposed to include color changes. Color changes seem to be ineffective for students who have consistent behavior problems. If anything, it might escalate a student's behavior. Then at the end of the day, students who have not had to change their color move up to blue. That doesn't seem right to me either. Just because they didn't move their color, doesn't mean they had a stellar day. I just want to focus on community, though I acknowledge there has to be a plan for misbehavior too. I want that plan to be individualized and private. What do you do?
