What is all the ROAR about? A small, rural school in North Louisiana. A commitment to move from a negative punitive approach to discipline to a POSITIVE, PROACTIVE, and PREVENTATIVE approach (ROAR). An evolvement into a place where students and faculty live and learn in a caring atmosphere. Where teachers feel like they make a difference in the lives of students not only academically, but on a personal level as well.

WHAT IS PBS ? Positive Behavior Support (PBS) is an approach to helping students improve their difficult behavior based on four things: An Understanding that people (even teachers) do not control others, but seek to support others in their own behavior change process. A Belief that there is a reason behind most difficult behavior, that students with difficult behavior should be treated with compassion and respect, and that they are entitled to lives of quality as well as effective services.
Continued... The Application of a large and growing body of knowledge about how to better understand students and make humane changes in their lives that can reduce the occurrence of difficult behavior. A Conviction to continually move away from coercion - the use of unpleasant events to manage behavior.
