22 Supporting Social Competence and Academic Achievement
OUTCOMES Supporting Staff Behavior Supporting Decision Making Key Points: This graphic describes the interplay between the three elements needed to achieve desired outcomes. Each system supports the other. What makes PBS different is that all three parts must be addressed to create sustainable change Practices-support student behavior Systems-support adult behavior (which must change first) Data-supports decision making Schools usually focus only on changing practices, but then no one follows though on suggested changes WHY? Because if you don’t think about how to support the adults to make the necessary changes they will be less likely to do it. This requires changing the systems . Also if you make changes that are not based on real meaningful data, the changes will feel irrelevant to staff and they will be less likely to follow though To maximize effectiveness we must implement all three. SYSTEMS DATA PRACTICES Supporting Student Behavior

23 Field Trips Field trips and other activities will be scheduled throughout the year. Attendance of field trips and activities may be denied due to behavior or academic concerns as applicable. Dates and details will be distributed as they become available.
