Parent’s Guide to PBIS

The Edison Way helps us reinforce that everyone always demonstrates Respect, Honesty, Responsibility, and Integrity. You can help us encourage these expectations by incorporating them into your day at home with your kids. Students can be reminded to be respectful by being kind to their siblings, parents, and other caregivers. Honesty can be encouraged by talking about the importance of telling the truth. Responsibility can be taught by showing students how to stay organized, arriving on time to class, and doing their homework. Lastly, families can promote Integrity by asking that students complete their own work on all assessments and tests.
