You may have heard the buzz about ...PBIS!
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support System is a program supported by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction to promote and maximize academic achievement and behavioral competence. It is a school-wide strategy for helping all students achieve important social and learning goals. We know that when good behavior and good teaching come together, our students will excel in their learning. We are proud to be a part of this exciting initiative.
As part of the PBIS program, we will establish several clear rules for the behavior we expect in all areas of our school. We will explicitly teach those expectations to the students and reward them frequently with positive notes and recognition for their great behavior. The expectations for all student behavior will be clear throughout our buildings, athletic fields, playground areas, cafeteria, gymnasium, and classrooms. You will be able to ask your student, “What are the rules in your school?” “How do you follow those rules?” “What happens when a teacher sees you following the rules?”
Our school rules will specifically address inappropriate behaviors, provide for a safer school environment and give more time for instruction. We will apply consistent consequences and positive reinforcement for all students. By detailing every expected behavior and teaching to students in a positive way, we will provide a common language for everyone in our building, including students, teachers, front office staff, and our paraprofessionals.
We believe that by helping students practice good behavior, we will build a school community where all students have an environment in which they can succeed and grow.
