Positive Behavior Intervention Support
Did you know that this year THE LINC became a PBIS school? PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. PBIS is a framework that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes for ALL students.
You may have noticed your children talking a lot about being WISE at school. WISE stands for:
- Winning attitude
- Interact with respect
- Show kindness
Staff at THE LINC are constantly teaching and reinforcing behaviors when we see students being WISE. When caught doing one of these things, students are given a LINC LOOT which they save to use for purchasing rewards. Each classroom teacher has a menu of ways in which students can spend their LOOT. Additionally, each House has an event for the marking period and the school has a way all students who are in good standing can spend their LINC LOOT. To be in good standing students must not have any major referrals and must have less than three incident slips. The school-wide event will cost 30 LINC LOOT and will take place on 11/7. Students have known about this EXCITING opportunity since the first week of school.
Additionally, the staff at THE LINC are analyzing behavior data and using it to react and respond to students' needs.
Stay tuned for more PBIS information or check out the PBIS Website.
