The DRC at Tier 1 Good News Note from Ms. Smith Date: 10/13 Your child behaved well today! Keep up the good work. To include a DRC, also known as a “good news note” at Tier 1, a method of school-home communication should be added. As can be seen in this example, each child that is able to achieve “good behavior” (e.g., staying on green using a behavior wheel; having 2 or fewer classroom violations; achieving 80% appropriateness on daily behavior ratings) for that day should receive this and be sent home. The absence of such a note home will indicate to the parents that student was unable to meet their behavior goal for that day. Additionally, for progress monitoring purposes a teacher could keep track of how many good news notes go home during a two week period. If your classroom simply keeps track of the number of classroom violations per day, this could also be apply without the behavior wheel.
