Hay Springs Public Schools Office Referral System
The staff of Hay Springs Public Schools is implementing a new Office Referral System as part of our NPBIS (Nebraska Positive Behavior Intervention System) plan. It is our intention to provide our students with appropriate behavior supports while improving communication and consistency.
The following is a brief outline of the Office Referral process if a student is not following expectations.
Step 1: Student arrives in office after being sent by teacher/staff member.
Step 2: Student completes a Taking Responsibility Sheet under the guidance/supervision of an Administrator or Office Staff Member.
Step 3: Administrator/Office Staff confers with teacher.
Step 4: Administrator/Office Staff determine consequence and conference with student. Taking Responsibility Sheet is signed and sent home for Parent Signature.
Step 5: Student and Administrator/Office Staff confer with Teacher.
Step 6: Student re-enters into the classroom.
What are “Hawk Bucks”?
Hawk bucks are positive reinforcements tied to our matrix behaviors. Hawk Bucks are for students that are exhibiting SOAR behaviors.
Who can deliver Hawk Bucks?
All staff members will be given Hawks bucks to deliver to students engaged in behaviors on the matrix. These are the behaviors that we have been specifically teaching this year.
How do Hawk Bucks work?
*Students will take the buck to the office where they will draw a prize out of the box. The buck will go into a grade level box.
*Every month, the office will draw one name from each of the grade level boxes for the students choice of a prize.
*At the end of each semester, the student in each level that has the most bucks will be awarded their choice of a prize
