The program wide expectations for at Frost are Safety, Work Ethic, Accountability, and Giving Respect (SWAG). These values are reinforced throughout the school day. Each class period, students can earn up to 2 SWAG bucks for each expectation for a total of 8 SWAG bucks a period. Students can earn additional SWAG bucks for demonstrating values that go above and beyond our expectations such as helping a peer or stepping outside of their comfort zone.
Students can cash in bucks in the school store and total bucks also accumulate on a weekly basis and help inform a student’s readiness to participate in events within the Chicago Area Alternative Education League. Students and families can view SWAG bucks through Kickboard, which is the behavior tracking tool used. Lastly, the amount of SWAG bucks earned over a period of time in each category can help inform a student’s readiness for the reintegration process.
