We are working to make our school the very best it can be!
By Adopting the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports Program (PBIS).
What is PBIS?
Positive behavior interventions and supports is a planned way to meet the behavioral needs of students in a school. Parents are important in the success of PBIS, and many choose to use a similar system at home.
What will it look like?
Positive behavior interventions and support is a system that is developed by a school for improving student behavior. It is used:
- With All students
- Across All environments in school (classroom, lunchroom, restroom, playground)
- To help schools to create effective learning environments
Parents and staff will continue to work together as we develop PBIS into our program. Our first collaboration was deciding on our positive behavior initiative Mission Statement. Parents voted by email, sending in their paper votes, as well as using our voting poster that was displayed in the lobby for two weeks. Both staff and parents voted and the winner is…
Now that we have chosen our mission statement we can begin the journey of implementing this idea throughout our entire program with the help of parents, students and staff. Stay tuned for more on how we plan to spread the Positive Possibilities, beginning with our four program wide expectations; Be Safe, Be Engaged, Be Responsible, Be a Team Player!
