Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies (PBIS) is a district-wide initiative to support student learning. PBIS is a comprehnsive plan that features: a prevention-focused continuum of support, proactive instructional approaches, and data-based decision making.
At School No. 17, we use ATOMS to teach our School-Wide Behavior Expectations. Students earn ATOMS tickets for following the expectations which they can use to redeem incentives like a positive phone call home, eating lunch at a special table, or reading to a younger student. As part of ATOMS students can also participate in special events including: School Dances, Minute-to-Win-It and more. Please see the Special Event Calendar or contact your child's classroom teacher for more information.
