Jackson Learning Center (JLC) uses its RESET Program to manage student behavior and progress. Students are rewarded with points for positive behavior and points are deducted for negative behavior. Students must earn a minimum amount of points daily to earn level credit and advance on the level system. The RESET Program is designed to monitor students' progress in advancing or dropping through the levels. JLC incorporates the fundamentals of Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS). This school-wide initiative is an evidenced based, systems approach to preventing and responding to classroom and school discipline problems. PBIS develops school-wide systems providing support for staff in teaching and promoting appropriate behavior in all students. By reducing behavioral problems, PBIS creates and maintains safe learning environments and increases opportunities for academic instruction.
