Daily Reward Time (DRT)
At the end of each school day, students are rewarded for their positive choices and good behavior. Students choose from a variety of fun activities. To support students who struggle with social skills and appropriate interaction with others, Focus Camp is an option during DRT to support students' social skills.
The Harrell Learning Center's PBIS store encourages students to make positive choices. When students use behavioral strategies or support one another with kindness and patience, they earn Hurricane Bucks. Students use spend PBIS Hurricane Bucks to "purchase" prizes and snacks.
The Hurricane Cafe Cart is available daily during Reward Lunch and Daily Reward Time. Students use Hurricane Bucks to purchase food items.
The Sensory Room is available to students in need of sensory support. This area allows students to relax if they are feeling overwhelmed or anxious. Students are closely monitored by staff while in this area.
