Success at Meadowood
Success comes from effort and the willingness to cooperate. Success at Meadowood is NOT a matter of chance or good luck. Every student is expected to be successful by choosing to follow the Meadowood Program
POINT SHEETS/HOMEWORK AGENDAS
Point sheets are our way of communicating with both the student and the parent/guardian regarding each student’s daily progress. We have found that when parents/guardians review and sign point sheets every day, the student’s performance is much better than those of the students whose point sheets are not signed regularly.
- Point sheets and homework agendas must be brought home reviewed and signed by a parent/guardian every night.
- Signed point sheets are worth 3 points.
- Signed homework agendas are worth 3 points. Parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to review the homework agenda and student’s homework.
- The sections of the point sheet indicate the student’s performance for the day.
- All students are escorted to all their destinations during the school day; this process is called “transition.”
- During transition, students are to face forward, keep one foot on the line, keeptheir hands at their sides, and stay silent at all times.
- Use of the black line ensures smooth and orderly transitions.
- One of Meadowood’s strategies for helping students correct their behavior is our system of adjustments. An adjustment is our way of warning a student to stop and think before making any more inappropriate choices.
- If a student fails to follow any staff member’s directions or fails to follow any of Meadowood’s policies, the student will be given an adjustment for the infraction.
- Each adjustment reduces the daily point total by one point.
- Students are expected to accept adjustments without discussion or argument
- Teachers frequently indicate the reason the student earned the adjustment(s); that is very important for both the student and parent/guardians.
- If a student chooses to argue about an adjustment, the student will be given another adjustment for arguing.
