Kickboard simultaneously supports two types of points systems: Dollars and Merits. What's the difference?
- If you want points to be labeled with a $ and give your students a weekly paycheck, you’ll use the Dollar system.
- If you want to call your points merits and demerits, you'll want to use the Merit system.
- You can also use them both at the same time! For example, you could use the merits system for all positive behaviors and use the dollars system for all negative behaviors, and this will give you two separate totals 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.
