PBIS Self-Assessment Survey

This is a survey that our PBIS team evaluates and puts into account when creating each year's action plan. Please take the time to complete this anonymous survey as soon as possible. Our goal is to have 100% participation so that the data can be relevant to future decision making.

In the past, while there has been great participation by our staff, some of the responses to the survey have not matched our PBIS program and its components. Please consider things like our ARROW to success/School Motto, our student of the week awards, positive comment cards, monthly attendance celebrations, and so on. Also, our PBIS committee meets monthly to discuss student behavior, and our meeting minutes are sent out to the entire staff via email. Please contact any member of the PBIS team if you have questions.

Members are: Tony Cress, Mark Flynn, Cindy Brainard, Ashley Cummins, Stephen Butcher, Steven French, Kathy Hall, Chelsea Jones, Sharon Flynn, Heather Tomlinson, Omar Prone, Susan Walters, and Anita Wilson.

Please encourage students to turn in these assignments, and enter them quickly into Infinite Campus using the guidelines above. Please enter the both the assigned date and the due date as the date we used for each iLearn day. Please remind students that we have to have a high percentage of participation in order for these days to be approved at the state level or they will have to be made up as well.
