Mrs. Williams' Second Grade Class! > Schoolwide Rules (Positive Behavior Support)
 
Positive Behavior Support System

Our School Rules:
PBS stands for Positive Behavior Support program that we are implementing this year at Williams. Students caught following our school-wide expectations may be rewarded with a wolf HOWLS ticket. They may then use these tickets to cash in for weekly, monthly, or quarterly prizes.

What are our school-wide expectations?

**Students will notice posters around the school to serve as reminders for these school-wide rules. We have rules aligned to wolf HOWLS in all areas of the school inclusive of, but not limited to arrival and dismissal areas, hallways, lunchroom, lunch recess, playground, restrooms, and stairwells.**

School Goal:

Positive Behavior Support:

Basic Principles:
Our goal is to facilitate positive behavior in our students and staff. Our goal is to educate all students and staff how to reinforce appropriate behaviors all across our school campus.
  1. Aims to build effective environments in which positive behavior is more effective than problem behavior.

  2. Is a collaborative, assessment-based approach to developing effective interventions for problem behavior.

  3. Emphasizes the use of preventative, teaching, and reinforcement-based strategies to achieve meaningful and durable behavior and lifestyle outcomes.
The basic principles of behavior are centered on the ABC's.

A = Antecedents (What happened before the behavior?)

B = Behavior (Define the problem behavior)

C = Consequence (Immediately follows the problem behavior)
Office vs. Teacher Managed: Information was taken and based upon this website:
Teacher-Managed Incidents:

* Discipline incidents that can be handled by the classroom teacher and usually do not warrant a discipline referral to the office. These may include but are not limited to: tardiness to class, gum chewing, incomplete classroom assignments, etc.

* These incidences are still tracked using our "Williams Elementary behavior Tracking Form," but the consequences are delivered by the teacher in the classroom




Office-Managed Incidents:

* Discipline incidents that must be handled by the administration. These may include but are not limited to: physical fights, property damage, weapons, etc.




Office vs. Teacher-Managed:

*A clear distinction must exist between problem behaviors that are teacher/staff managed versus problem behaviors that are office-managed or crisis.
