PBIS

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
‚Äč

Overview

Peacock Middle School has implemented the character education program PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports) to benefit our entire student population.  Here are the key points of PBIS:

  • We have three clearly defined expectations: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be ProudEvery student will be taught our three expectations in multiple settings throughout our school.
  • We continually self-evaluate our culture to effectively meet the social and emotional needs of all students.
  • We have established a behavioral continuum here at Peacock to encourage the expected behaviors of being respectful, being responsible, and being proud.
  • We have a curriculum in place that will discourage inappropriate behaviors and teach the expected behaviors.
  • We will reduce the need to always be reactive by replacing it with a more proactive approach of teaching students our expectations first.  Rather than waiting for a student to fail before we intervene, we provide the necessary supports aligned with the Social and Emotional Learning Standards (SEL). 
  • PBIS reminds us that growth must occur for all children even in situations of misbehavior.   
  • Students are rewarded with a Charger Check (reward ticket) for following our three expectations at school.  Charger Checks can be used in many ways and teams will create reward lists students can choose from.    
  • Research has shown that PBIS not only improves a school culture, but it will also improve academic performance.
