The main focus of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is to provide a clear system for all expected behaviors at Navelencia Middle School. Through PBIS, we will work to create and maintain a productive, safe environment in which ALL school community members have clear expectations and understandings of their role in the educational process.
Proactive Approach to School-Wide Discipline
Schools that implement school-wide systems of positive behavior support focus on taking a team-based system approach and teaching appropriate behavior to all students in the school. Schools that have been successful in building school-wide systems develop procedures to accomplish the following:
Behavioral expectations are taught using the same teaching formats applied to other curricula. The general rule is presented, the rationale for the rule is discussed, positive examples (“right way”) are described and rehearsed, and negative examples (“wrong way”) are described and modeled. Students are given an opportunity to practice the “right way” until they demonstrate fluent performance.
Our School-Wide Behavior Goal:
By the end of the 2019-20 school year, the number of one-time out of school suspension students will be reduced by 5%; from 27 to 26 students with one-time out of school suspension.
Our School-Wide Academic Goal:
By the end of March 2020, the percentage of students scoring proficient on the SRI will increase by 5% when compared to SRI data from September 2019.
