East Elementary PBIS

What is PBIS?

PBIS stands: for school-wide POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION SUPPORT.

It is a broad range of systemic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes while preventing problem behavior.  Simply put, it’s a general approach to preventing problem behavior and at the same time rewarding positive behavior through school-wide incentives.

While acronyms may vary from building to building, East Elementary will teach a basic code of conduct, which includes being a safe, respectful, and responsible learner.  This pledge will be reflected in each matrix and will be displayed in every classroom.  The matrix will list and define the expected behaviors in several settings throughout each building and campus including, but not limited to, the cafeteria, on the playground and in the classroom.  Every student will be introduced to the matrix at the beginning of the school year with each expectation taught in the classroom and reinforced throughout the year.

To promote and encourage positive behaviors there will be several incentives in place that are awarded to students.  At East Elementary students may given a Spirit Tickets (K-5) or Spirit Sticks (EC) to earn various items from our menu of incentives. Some examples include getting a gum pass, eating in the classroom, shadowing the principal, or a no shoe pass.

Students are encouraged to treat each other with respect, act responsibly and think about the safety of themselves and others in all situations.  As a school community, we are able to achieve these things through PBIS.

If you have any questions concerning your child’s behavior, please contact the teacher. Should you need further clarification, contact the principal.
