WFC Motivation System
Respect – Integrity – Responsibility
At Walter Fitzgerald we promote Responsibility, Integrity and Respect (IR²). As a campus we follow these expectations and students earn points for exhibiting these skills throughout the school day. Staff uses the matrix below and points are earned based on student performance in class. Points earned add up every two weeks and with them the students earn rewards like free hot lunches, field trips, outings and privileges around the building.
We use the following matrix in every class.
|1||States what is expected and takes action at least 15% of the time.||Demonstrates accountability for commitments and responsibilities at least 15% of the time.||Shows care and kindness to others (students & staff) in the school community (including property) at least 15% of the time.|
|2||States what is expected and takes appropriate actions 60% of the time.||Demonstrates accountability for commitments and responsibilities 60% of the time.||Shows care and kindness to others (students & staff) in the school community (including property) at least 60% of the time.|
|3||Does what is expected and does what is stated at least 90% of the time.||Is accountable and responsible for commitments at least 90% of the time.||Treats others (students & staff) in the school community (including property) with care and kindness at least 90% of the time.|
Students can earn a total of 45 points each day (9 points a period).
Students are encouraged to talk with their teachers about the points they are earning or not earning in their classes and calculate their points daily on their cards.
At the end of each day they “check out” with their advisory teacher and review their points for the day and/or set goals for tomorrow.
