Class DOJO

I recently learned about this free (Wahoo!) program and fell in love. It is a classroom tool that helps teachers improve behavior quickly and easily!

Living in a society with ever-changing technology, this program allows teachers to record information on their computer, cell phone and/or on their smart boards. Teachers are able to positively reinforce and negatively reinforce any behaviors they want to AND the best part is- they can tailor it to their class and their needs.
Why it is great for counselors: We can use it in our small groups, classroom guidance, and can track the behavior of the students.

For parents: Parents and guardians can log onto the website and see their child's conduct grade on a day to day basis. 

For students: It's cool!  They create their own avatar and can make it unique to their interests. They also have the ability to track their own behavior and see what their conduct grade is daily, weekly and by marking period.

I encourage you to check it out for yourself and share it with your faculty! Let me know if you have any questions or comments! I would love your feedback!
