2020-2021 PBiS Goal
Did you know that as of October 2, 2020, 99% of our students have one or fewer behavior referrals? 390 out of our 393 students have received one or fewer behavior referrals for discipline thanks to our school-wide support and commitment to PBiS (Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports)! Our students are making great choices and learning quickly to avoid repeating bad ones!
Our overall goal is to have 85% or more of our kids receive one or fewer minor/major behavior referrals this school year. We are on track to meet that ambitious and worthwhile goal!
What is PBIS?
SWPBiS stands for School-Wide Positive Behavior Supports. SWPBiS is a research-based continuum using an evidence-based teaching model to achieve academically and behaviorally important outcomes for all students.
We have defined our four expected behaviors (ROAR) for our elementary students. They are all positively stated, easy to remember, clearly defined and tell students what TO DO rather than what not to do.
R - Respect Yourself and Others
O - Own Your Actions
A - Have a Positive Attitude
