Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBiS) at Hillside
Recognizing Positive Behavior
Students who demonstrate positive behavior at school are recognized with verbal praise ("Thanks for saying okay and doing that right away"), Tiger Tickets (with which students can enter drawings for prizes in the classroom and school-wide), and Positive Office Referrals (students come down with a referral that states their positive behavior and office staff celebrates them, calls home, and posts on Twitter). Students benefit from receiving recognition for their efforts to do the right thing. The Hillside staff loves to recognize and praise positive behaviors in our students!

- Think about the steps needed to complete the task
