 School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (SW-PBIS) is comprised of a broad range of systemic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes while preventing problem behavior with all students. SW-PBIS is not a specific “model”, but a compilation of effective practices, interventions, and systems change strategies that have a long history of empirical support and development and individually have been demonstrated to be empirically effective and efficient. (Blueprint, University of Oregon, 2004). 

     The goal of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is academic and social success. This goal is accomplished through the development of universal expectations for all students, support plans for students at-risk, and individualized programs for students with significant behavior challenges. The principle practices include, but are not limited to: 

  • defining expectations;

  • teaching expectations and social skills necessary for students to meet the expectations;

  • implementing contextual change to support meeting expectations; and

  • implementing strategies to increase performance of expectations including frequent reinforcement and corrective consequences. 

     When implemented together by all faculty and staff, the PBIS approach is designed to provide a quality teaching and learning environment with consistent rules and discipline. We will create a schoolwide Culture of Consistency. 

 

GCM will hold monthly PBIS activities where students will be able to participate in fun games or activities.  In order to attend these events, students need to have at least 75 teacher signatures on their PRIDE cash card, and have no office referrals for the time period specified for the event.
