About this Campaign
Dr. Ethel Allen Promise Academy is in its third year of implementation of a Positive Behavior Support Program (PBIS) that has dramatically shifted school culture and aided the significant growth of student achievement. This year we were recognized by the state of Pennsylvania as 1 of 10 schools in Philadelphia with full implementation of fidelity recognition status. The PBIS program also supports the growth of student attendance, which has been a main focus during the pandemic. We are not provided a direct budget to support the purchasing of incentives and our school budget rules also delimits the items that can be purchased through a school's operational budget. Your donation will allow us to provide students access to incentives that the students directly desire as indicated through surveys given to students and families. At Dr. Ethel Allen we have a grand band tier approach to PBIS so incentives are specific to a students developmental age. We have also expanded our use of incentives to families to drive participation in parent and family workshops on how they can help support student achievement at home. This important initiative has led to Dr. Ethel Allen being the recipient of the School District of Philadelphia's 2020 Home and School Partnership Award Winner. Some of the incentives we are looking to purchase include gift card to local retailers that the students frequent, pizzas and other healthy food options that students enjoy delivered right to their door, and items such as air pods.
