Highfive is built on the principles of social emotional learning and restorative practices. We offer a robust data solution which includes schoolwide data. These key differences make our goal of influencing positive behavior change across respect, responsibility and productivity possible.
Schools can customize each aspect of the tracking process to fit their specific needs. Each event is assigned a weight, in points, based on its severity as determined by your school. Interventions are then triggered by accumulated points, not by an arbitrary number of individual events. Weights for individual events can be adjusted at any time.
We recommend specific Tier 1, 2, and 3 interventions as defaults that follow our guiding principles. This is especially helpful for schools that simply don’t know where to start, however, you are free to customize your interventions if you are comfortable doing so.
An event is an observed student behavior which can be positive (resiliency) or negative (respect & responsibility) and while important to log, does not require immediate attention. A referral is an observed negative behavior which is serious and requires immediate attention and/or discipline from your school admin.
Of course! We believe that parent involvement is integral when influencing positive behavior change in students. Parents can set up their account to receive notifications when their student receives a referral, has an event logged, or needs an intervention. Parent accounts can be disabled at the school level if desired.
