At Stephens Middle School we believe in the importance of teaching our students behavioral expectations throughout the school community.  A Behavior Matrix is a chart that clearly communicates our school’s expectations for positive behaviors for students throughout our school building. It assists Teachers, Administrators and all staff in teaching, modeling, and reinforcing positive behavior in all areas of our school including the hallway, cafeteria, shared outdoor spaces, and bathroom. 

This reference tool helps the school community consistently reinforce our set of key behavioral expectations during our students’ daily routines. When expectations are visibly displayed in school settings, it helps to increase students’ understanding of school-wide expectations and lists specific examples of actions students can take to meet these expectations.
