Waverly Yowell Elementary School is implementing Virginia Tiered Systems of Support (VTSS). VTSS is a data driven decision making process to support students’ academic and behavioral growth. A committee was formed with teachers representing each grade level and department. The team developed a school-wide matrix that defines behavioral expectations. A positive behavior system was implemented. Teachers write STAR forms for students showing the school-wide expectations. Every student earning a STAR form gets their name put on a STAR near our main office. Each week one name is drawn from each grade level’s forms and those students get to pick a prize out of the prize box. Grand prize drawings will happen at our end of 9 weeks assemblies.
