What is a Self-Management Plan?

Learning to self-manage teaches students to have a growth mindset. Failure happens to everyone, but we learn from it and try again.

Teaching self-management skills for students has been proven to improve academic performance, productivity, time-on-task, and decrease problem behavior.

Self-management strategies involve:

Goal setting

By allowing the student to participate in setting their goals, you empower them to take an active role in self-management strategies, as well as self-management interventions.

Behavior monitoring

Students practice their self-awareness skills and build a record of their difficulties and successes. Through self-monitoring, students become more aware of where they struggle and where they succeed.


Rewarding positive behavior increases the likelihood your student will repeat that behavior. Tailor the rewards to the student and the behaviors you want to reinforce with the self-management plan.


While students may look forward to the rewards, reflection on the process teaches them the most. What was the most challenging part of the process? What can they do better the next time? These questions and answers help students gain confidence in themselves and their skills. This self-evaluation process also teaches students the power of resilience and perseverance. They learn that failure can happen, but if they keep trying, they can succeed.

School Advisory Council

Our school advisory council will meet at 4:00 in the media center.

Future dates:
