PBIS Pieces

December 2015/ January 2016

Excellence is All Around Us in Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD

Conducting campus visits throughout the first semester has affirmed the aspects of excellence regarding campus PBIS practices. Each campus is at an individual implementation level. This Newsletter will highlight some of the amazing PBIS pieces we viewed on campuses. As always, you can follow us on Twitter @PBIS_Pieces for a window into each campus.

Ideas to Recognize & Reinforce both Students & Staff

The student stores at both Wayside Middle School and Ed Willkie Middle School have caught students meeting the campus behavioral expectations and rewarded them with "bucks" to spend. Ed Willkie Middle School administrators asked a student panel for suggestions on what they'd like to see in the store and this has been a score with student motivation!

Prairie Vista has recently began a BINGO card where peers can award one another stickers for upholding the campus expectations, PBIS structure, and assisting fellow teachers. When a teacher gets a "black-out" they can take their BINGO card to the front office and trade it for various prizes or classroom supplies.
