Schools to fo­cus on be­hav­iour man­age­ment

Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS -

WITH MAL­ADAP­TIVE be­hav­iour be­ing dubbed by many as one of the big­gest prob­lems in Ja­maican schools, a sub­sidiary of Real Life Min­istries In­ter­na­tional, Ac­kee Be­havioural Man­age­ment Sys­tems (Ac­kee BMS), which is geared to­wards be­hav­iour change, has been im­ple­mented.

“Over the years, much ef­fort has been placed on aca­demic and ath­letic achieve­ments in schools, but pos­i­tive be­hav­iour must now be seen as a key in­gre­di­ent to sig­nif­i­cant aca­demic, vo­ca­tional and pro­fes­sional suc­cess that could be trans­lated into the eco­nomic growth and de­vel­op­ment that a coun­try like Ja­maica needs,” said CEO of Ac­kee BMS, the Rev Dr Cor­nel Simms.

He added: “The Ac­kee Be­hav­iour Man­age­ment Sys­tem seeks to greatly im­prove the be­hav­iour of stu­dents in schools in a shared praxis man­ner. It pro­vides the tools for staff, stu­dents, par­ents and other stake­hold­ers to be in­te­grally in­volved in pre­vent­ing in­ci­dence in schools and to solve is­sues re­lat­ing to stu­dents in a man­ner that ul­ti­mately trans­forms them and keeps schools in­ci­dent free.”

There are two gen­eral arms of Ac­kee BMS, one that deals with the tech­nol­ogy and the other is the clinic.

Ac­kee be­gins its launch on Oc­to­ber 13 in the parish.
