School: Turning Point Academy
I teach at a special education center school for students grades K-12. We serve students with a wide variety of psychiatric, cognitive, and behavioral needs. Our school has 50, beautiful, young people with varying strengths and weaknesses. Their backgrounds are as diverse as their abilities. Encouraging positive behavior is so important to us at our school! Due to the special needs of our students, a point-based behavioral system where students can earn points for good behavior and school work is ideal for them, to prepare for the real world. Students can then trade these points in at our student-run school store for desirable items. Our school store also enables students overcoming economic barriers to work for and procure high-ticket items that they otherwise could not obtain. This project is to help us stock our school store with a variety of items that our students will love! Please help us as we encourage our students to be safe, responsible, and respectful!
