In many schools, staff can nominate one student for “student of the month” recognition. This idea is to expand the criteria so that staff can nominate as many students as they like, as often as they like, for any behavior they think makes a difference. The students are invited to the Student of the Month meeting where they can be recognized and are given an opportunity to provide feedback to the principal on their school. The program is credited with improving overall climate and culture, relationships, collaboration and cooperation.
