Towles Intermediate School Trust Card FAQS

 

What is a Trust Card?

A Trust Card is a badge that all Towles New Tech (TNT) students are required to wear on a lanyard every day. Trust Cards give students the following privileges with the permission of the facilitator at the beginning of the year:

Each subsequent quarter, students can level up on their Trust Card by following our school norms. Each level up in Trust Cards brings a new privilege earned.


How does my student earn his/her trust card?

All TNT students complete a culture project the first week of school. This project focuses on the norms of trust, respect and responsibility as well as general expectations of our school. Once a student has completed his/her project, he/she will be awarded a Trust Card.  

What happens if my child forgets his/her Trust Card?

When a student forgets/is not wearing his/her Trust Card he/she will not be allowed to have the privileges of the Trust Card. Students will be allowed to use the restroom, but they must first ask a facilitator before signing out.

What happens if my child loses or destroys his/her Trust Card?

When a student loses or is not wearing his/her Trust Card he/she will not be allowed to have the privileges of the Trust Card. Students will be able to purchase a new Trust Card from the Paw Points store.

What are Paw Points and how does my student earn them?

A Paw Points card is given to every student. When a facilitator notices that a student is doing something good, they may receive a punch from that person. Full cards can be redeemed at the Paw Points store on Fridays to purchase Trust Cards, snacks, earbuds, lanyards, pens, pencils and other rewards.

What do the Trust Card steps mean?

Trust Card steps are intermediate warning steps before a student receives a referral.
