Kickboard supports two types of points systems: Dollars and Merits. What's the difference?
- If you want the points associated with your behavior to be labeled with a dollar sign ($) and give your students a weekly paycheck, you should use the Dollar system.
- If you do not want points to have a monetary connotation, you'll want to use the Merit system.
- You can also use them both at the same time! For example, you could use the dollar system for all positive behaviors and use the merit system for all negative behaviors. This will give you two separate balances that do not count against each other.
What else can you call them? The Soulsville Charter School calls their points Grammies because of their connection to the Stax Museum of American Soul Music. Any time a student demonstrates one of their core values, he or she is given a Grammy. A Grammy Report will show students how many Grammies they’ve earned. To learn more about Grammies and the Soulsville Charter School’s school culture system, watch this interview with their teachers.
