What is PBIS?
PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions. This means that we, as a PBIS school, rely on proactive recognition of positive behaviors to create effective behavioral systems. Here is what that looks like at Evergreen.
- We utilize a tiered system of behavior. This counts for how we recognize the severity of problem behavior as well as how we target support to students.
- We focus on the positive behaviors that happen throughout our school day.
- We provide various supports to students at all levels, including walking assemblies, informational posters, etc.
- We also provide various rewards and student access to privileges in response to good behavior. This also includes general recognition for positive behavior. At Evergreen we use Mervin's Trough, White Ticket drawings, the Student Store, Mustang of the Week, Monday Mathematicians, etc.
This is all put into place to ensure that students are able to succeed in a positive, supportive environment.
Upcoming Awards and Recognition
Every Monday, tickets will be placed in the mailboxes of all teachers. This is to support teachers in getting tickets passed out for good behavior throughout the day. Remember, white tickets CAN be used within classrooms as class currency and ways to recognize positive behavioral choices.
