PBIS SET (School-Wide Evaluation Tool)
The School-Wide Evaluation Tool (SET) is a research instrument used to determine the extent to which a school is implementing schoolwide positive behavior supports (SW-PBS) at the Universal or Tier 1 Level.
The SET produces an Overall score (%) and a score for each of the seven features of school-wide PBS:
1) Behavioral Expectation defined
2) Behavioral Expectations taught
3) Behavioral Expectation rewarded
4) System response to rule violations
5) Informational gathered to monitor student behavior
6) Local management support for school-wide procedures
7) District level support for school-wide procedures
A school is considered to be implementing SW-PBS with fidelity at the Universal or Tier 1 level when it achieves a score of 80% overall AND 80% on Expectations Taught.
On Thursday, February 11, outside evaluators will visit Lakeview and will spend two to three hours: interviewing students and faculty, observing school environments, reviewing school documents and interviewing school administrators.

Arts and Education Campaign Kicks Off
On Monday,we kicked-off the 2016 WSD Arts and Education Council Workplace Giving Campaign, and we need your help to make our District campaign a success!
Once again this year, you will be able to view campaign contributions by school and building, as well as the District contribution total during the campaign. Last year, 30 WSD employees contributed a total of $1,800 in the effort. This year our goal as a District is $3,000. No gift is too small!
We all can play a part in ensuring the future of the arts in the St. Louis area. Your gift to the Arts and Education Council provides the essential operating support the arts need to thrive and grow and has a tremendous impact in our community. In keeping with its mission—to build appreciation, participation and support for arts and arts education throughout the St. Louis community--A&E has raised and distributed more than $100 million since 1963. Through individual donations like yours, A&E annually funds nearly 70 arts and arts education organizations across our area. A thriving arts climate boosts our local economy. It strengthens the creativity, innovation and diversity necessary for a healthy, growing community where people love to live, work and raise families.
To support arts and arts education in our community, simply visit the WSD campaign website and select your building on the right hand side. You can make your tax-deductible gift through payroll deduction (on the left side of your building’s landing page, click on “Payroll Deduction” and remember we have 24 pay periods) or with your credit card (one time or recurring deductions) by clicking on the "Give Now" button on the upper right hand side of your giving page.
For WSD employees, the advantages of giving online are:
- Convenience, ease of use and security
- Peace of mind in knowing that your donation has been received
- Immediate acknowledgement of your gift
- If you choose payroll deduction, your contribution will be spread over 24 pay periods
Of course you can still donate by cash or check, just click on the “Give” tab, and the donation page will pop up. Scroll down and click on “Print Donation Form” at the bottom of the page. Donations made by cash or check can be mailed or dropped off directly to the A&E Council, or returned to the Community Relations Department at Central Office.
Thank you for your thoughtful consideration and support of the Arts and Education Council Annual Workplace Giving Campaign this year.
Communications/Public Relations Update
As a result of the Communications Committee and in line with our CSIP communication goals, the District has expanded options for creating teacher websites that are accessible by parents to include Google Sites. Teachers are free to create a Google Site using their WSD email/Google log in and buildings can (and should) include those links on their website. The Committee will be discussing adding all teacher/ team websites to the app as well. In order for the site to be public, you must go under "share" and click on "Public on the web." Please contact Mary Lapak or Greg Lawrence or Samantha Knoll if you have any questions.
