A safe place to learn and play can make the difference between a good day at your summer site and a difficult one.
Include student behavior expectations in orientation materials.
- Check out how MathPOWER at Northeastern University develops behavior code contracts with families and students to promote a safe and orderly environment, which can help boost daily attendance.
- Provide contact information to parents for a staff member available for questions, concerns about attendance, behavior, bullying, etc.
- Create an expectations chart, based on the student behavior expectations created before the program.
- Post the chart in a prominent place at the site and reference it when communicating with students.
