A School Wide Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) initiative has been adopted by School 8 and will be seen throughout the building - in the halls, the bathrooms, the cafeteria, and everywhere else!
We have already begun introducing student expectations to each TEAM. Regular, predictable, positive learning and teaching environments have been established; adults and peers have been trained to serve as positive role models, teaching and modeling behavioral expectations; and a system has been developed for providing regular positive feedback and recognition.
The goal is to improve social competence, develop environments that support academic success, and contribute to an increase in our school’s capacity to address the behavioral support needs of all students and staff effectively and efficiently.
Students are expected to Take responsibility, Expect excellence, Act safely, and Model respect!
