SCHOOL-WIDE POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION SUPPORT
What is Positive Behavior Intervention Support?
SW-PBIS is a process for creating safer and more effective schools. It is a systems approach to enhancing the capacity of schools to educate all children by developing research-based, school-wide, and classroom behavior support systems. The process focuses on improving a school’s ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students. Rather than a prescribed program, PBS provides systems for schools to design, implement, and evaluate effective school-wide, classroom, non-classroom, and student-specific plans. SW-PBS includes school-wide procedures and processes intended for all students and all staff in all settings. SW-PBS is not a program or a curriculum. It is a team-based process for systemic problem solving, planning, and evaluation. It is an approach to creating a safe and productive learning environment where teachers can teach and all students can learn.
What is PBIS at our school?
We have adopted a unified set of school expectations. These statements define our expectations for behavior in our school. You will see these rules posted throughout the school and your child will be learning them during his or her first days at school. Our unified school expectations, found in every classroom and non-classroom setting in the school, are as follows:
- Be safe!
- Embrace learning!
- Show respect!
- Take responsibility!
Students can earn Bulldog Bucks for displaying correct expectations in the school building. Each classroom teacher will have a school store set up for students to spend their Bulldog Bucks bi-monthly. Students can spend or save their Bulldog Bucks each time their classroom store is open. Students can purchase a variety of prizes, including candy, trinkets, and coupons for various things. If you have questions please contact your student’s teacher.
