A safe place to learn and play can make the difference between a good day at your summer site and a difficult one.

Before Program

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.

During Program

Contact information

  • Provide contact information to parents for a staff member available for questions, concerns about attendance, behavior, bullying, etc.

Expectations chart

  • 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.
