guidelines of Shelby County Schools.
• Students are referred by the administration and
designated faculty.

• Activities include class assignments from teachers,
character education building activities, real-world
discussions, and anger management activities.
60
Secondary Intervention (Tier 2)
Evaluation
Each 20 day period, the data for Tier 2 students is analyzed. The
PBIS team plays close attention to the following:
• Number of office referrals
• Observation data
• Data from the PowerSchool SMS system will be used to
determine success rate of interventions.
• Conferences (Students, Teachers, Guidance Counselors, etc.)
• Parent, Teacher, Student Surveys
61
Tertiary Interventions (Tier 3)
• Our School Support Team (S-Team) and teachers identify and plan for these
students by reviewing disciplinary referrals and parent conferences. S-Team
meetings, meetings with the counselors, and meetings with the teachers are
conducted early to identify special student needs. We monitor these interventions
with data from PowerSchool.
• We have 0 Functional Behavior Assessments and comprehensive Behavior
Intervention Plans
• A. Maceo does not participate in the SHAPE Program
• We had 2 Threat Assessments (From last year, 2013 - 2014)
• Currently, we have 17 expulsions
We monitor each 20-day period the success of interventions. We look for a
decreased number of disciplinary referral forms and parent contacts/meetings for
Tier 3 students. We also look for an increase in attendance and academic
performance for these targeted students.
