Crafting a goal for change involves defining the circumstance for when the problem would no longer be a problem. The goal created should be S.M.A.R.T. (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time bound) and answer the following questions: How should the problem be changed? What evidence is needed to show that the goal was achieved our goal? 

Suggest a goal statement for the problem identified below. 

Precision Statement

There are a high number of tardy to class referrals, throughout the day, from 9th and 10th grade students (over 30% of the students in those grades have three or more tardies in two weeks). Students report that teachers don’t care or notice if they are in the classroom or not. They also indicate that nothing happens for the first five minutes anyway. Staff report that students do not move in the hallway and are engaged in socializing (gain peer attention).
