Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS)

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an approach to teaching and supporting positive behaviors and meeting the needs of ALL students.  This school-wide approach to discipline focuses on building a safe and positive environment in which all students can learn.

 

The foundation of PBIS at Condit is the five school-wide expectations:

*Respect

*Ownership

*Cooperation

*Kindness

*Safety

In addition to our behavior expectations, PBIS has four other components: 1) a behavior matrix which explains behavior expectations in each school setting; 2) direct teaching of the expectations; 3) PBIS recognition cards; and 4) behavior tracking sheets to record and address inappropriate behaviors.

 

Teaching Expectations

  • Throughout the school year, students will be taught how to behave according to the five school-wide expectations. Teachers will help students learn what the expectations “look” and “sound” like in every setting during the school day. These lessons will be re-taught and reinforced throughout the school year and become a regular part of our instructional program.

 

Condit PBIS Recognition

  • Acknowledging and reinforcing positive behavior is one of the best ways to change inappropriate behavior and encourage appropriate behavior. At Condit, each student will earn recognition through Rock Star Slips for meeting behavior expectations.  When goals are met, students will enjoy participating in periodic school-wide celebrations.

     

    Condit Behavior Matrix

  • The behavior matrix is a detailed description of expected behavior in each setting of the school. For example, in the dining hall it is respectful to say please and thank you. It is responsible to clean your space. The matrix will be posted in classrooms, around school and sent home.

 

  PBIS Condit ROCK STAR

  • Acknowledging and reinforcing positive behavior is one of the best ways to change inappropriate behavior and encourage appropriate behavior. At Condit, each student will earn recognition through Rock Star Slips for meeting behavior expectations. When goals

                        are met, students will enjoy participating in periodic school-wide celebrations.

 

Condit Behavior Referrals

  • Even with clear expectations and positive reinforcement, sometimes children will make poor choices. A Behavior Tracking Sheet will be used to address inappropriate behavior and help staff assess what additional supports the student might need. Discipline issues are divided into major and minor infractions. A minor/ major description chart is available.

     

  • Major infractions are issues that result in office time. Parents will always be notified by the Principal or teacher about major infractions.
  • Minor infractions are behaviors that are disruptive to the learning environment, but are handled by the supervising staff member.  If a child receives three minor infractions in one week, it becomes a major infraction and the Principal will address the behaviors and parents/guardians will be notified.

     

  • When a child repeatedly receives minors or major referrals, parents/ guardians, teachers, support staff and the Principal will meet to build an effective behavior intervention plan for that child.
