PBIS is well organized and beneficial for well-behaved students. We would like more development of intrinsic behaviors addressing supplemental and intensive student needs. Easy to remember expectations. The phrase we use is catchy. There needs to be better efficiency of support staff with following through on guidelines. PBIS creates a positive environment, promotes common language with all, is a good motivator with most children but doesnt work for all. Kids love the store and events and appreciate the verbiage to identify what they have done thats positive. The team does a good job of sending the minutes promptly and thats informative. I think there should be a way to ensure that everyone is on board and following the program with fidelity because children may fall through the cracks. Major and minor referrals should be used by everyone to document ALL behavior. PBIS sets clear, standard expectations across the school. Simplified and easy to use. We need to be more consistent with handing out paw prints. We need to continually educated our staff on how to use paw prints and what to say when handing them out. Scheduled events are effective, enjoyed, and well organized. We receive a lot of communication regarding PBIS. The signs are all around the school and the vocabulary is universally used. Check-In Check-Out is a strength of PBIS. Feedback in yellow denotes items that will be further addressed and responded to next school year.
The annual student survey is anonymously filled out by 3-5 th grade students in the spring Results are compiled and shared with the Student Advisory Council (SAC) to inform planning and policies from year to year.
