PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Support. This framework to guide student discipline beginning in the 2019-2020 school year. This framework is a proactive approach to establishing behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students to achieve social, emotional, and academic success. Consistent expectations are taught, modeled, and practiced by every student from preschool to fifth grade. These expectations are: Jets work hard Exercise self-control Treat others and things with respect Safety first
By having clear, established expectations, students can be continually taught and encouraged to follow the procedures. When students follow the procedures, encouragement will be given. If students choose not to follow the procedures, appropriate consequences will be given.
Reward System With a focus on positive reinforcement, students will be able to earn JETS Fuel Tickets when they display appropriate behavior. Staff members will use these Fuel Tickets along with verbal reinforcement to promote a positive environment where all students can feel successful. Positive reinforcement helps shape appropriate behaviors and will be given at a rate of 4 positives to every 1 correction. Students will be able to redeem their tickets every two weeks to earn special privileges in their classrooms (ex: write with a pen, no shoes in the classroom, eat lunch with the teacher, etc.) *Staff members may also keep track of Fuel Tickets electronically using a classroom management system called ClassDojo. A point on this system is the same as a Fuel Ticket.
Discipline System Behaviors will be tracked and handled by staff members when they are considered minor offenses. The office will handle all major offenses. Definitions of minor and major behaviors are included in this handbook. When a student displays a major behavior, an office referral form is filed in order to monitor problem behaviors and help with decision-making and interventions. Parents will be contacted regarding all major offenses. Contact may be made through various formats such as phone calls, texts, email, note, etc.
In the event that a student displays the same minor behavior four times in one month, the behavior will become a major offense and warrant an office referral. Parent contact will be made by the classroom teacher prior to the fourth offense. Communication with parents will be key in supporting positive student behavior.
Student Behavior Matrix: A student behavior matrix was developed to identify desired behaviors for all students at ACES to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.
This sign will be posted in our classroom and reviewed often. It will also be used as a tool in a situation where a students needs re-taught an expectation.
The following chart is a list of the Major and Minor offenses that would result in tally marks. These be tracked monthly .
