“Continuing our Positive Behavior Program at Home”
PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) is a system of supports that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and reinforcing appropriate student behaviors in order to create and nurture a safe, positive school environment.
The three expectations taught at our campus are:
- Be Safe
- Be Responsible
- Be Respectful
We teach your children exactly what behaviors look like in our classrooms and our common areas of the school (i.e. Lunch tables, hallways, playground, bathrooms, etc.).
At Mann, we focus our attention on catching students who are demonstrating positive behaviors aligned with our expectations. We also provide re-directions and lessons to students who need more support in learning the expectations.
We encourage you to think of what our expectations of Safety, Respect, and Responsibility look like in your home. You can even develop a matrix of what is expected in your home like the one we have created.
Be Safe Be Respectful Be Responsible
When you teach, model and reinforce expected behaviors at home you do two things:
You support what your child is doing in school, and you create better behaviors outside of school. Focus on teaching what you want to see from your child and praise appropriately. You will see an increase in positive behaviors like we have at Mann.
