Using Kickboard to create a focus on character and improve positivity in the school culture. CNHS increased student retention by 23%.
Using Kickboard to manage and evaluate incentives and using Positivity to increase attendance and decrease tardies.
“Last year, we had an attendance problem,” said Longoria. “So, this year, students get $10 in Kickboard every Friday if they’re here all week and $10 more if they have no tardies. That’s increased our attendance a lot — and if we start to see an issue we can now intervene faster.”
“With PBIS and Kickboard, our teachers are focused on the positive. As a result, attendance is up, tardies are down, and our school culture is better,” said Longoria.
