    SCBD HISTORY COURSE DESCRIPTION:

    SELF CONTAINED BEHAVIORAL DISABILITIES PROGRAM (SCBD) This program provides an educational setting and services for students whose need for structure precludes a traditional school program. A core curriculum of academic subjects that are mandated for graduation are taught in both a group setting as well as individualized based upon academic levels. The classes are limited in size to permit flexibility in meeting individual needs. These students are included in the regular classroom setting whenever appropriate. The highly structured environment emphasizes behavior modification and the development of appropriate social and workplace readiness skills. The goal is to monitor the progress of each student in all areas of behaviors and academic performance, in and around the classroom setting. Also included in this monitoring process is the social skills aspect of each student’s daily interactions with both their peers and adults. This monitoring process will focus not only on identifying problem areas but, will allow the teachers to re-teach and model proper behaviors and social skills.

    WHAT IS THE POLICY ON LATE & INCOMPLETE WORK?

     

    Regular attendance is absolutely essential for success in this class.

     

    In-class work missed during an "excused" absence can receive full credit. For each day that you are excused, you have a day to make-up missing work (this does not include the review day immediately before a unit test).

     

    A student will receive zero credit for any in-class work missed during "unexcused" absences.

     

    WHAT MATERIALS WILL BE NEEDED?

    A pen or pencil and paper are the only item each student is responsible for bringing to class each day!

     

    Binders will provided to each student.  Students are responsible for keeping binders neat and organized.
