Positive Behavior Support (PBS)
The ABC’s of Behavior are the expectations we have for our students…
What is PBS?
Positive Behavior Support is an alternative to traditional methods of discipline.
Students are taught the expectations for the classroom, cafeteria, play areas, and hallways. In addition, social skills lessons are taught so that children know the right way to ask for help, listen to the teacher, and get along in a social world. Teachers give out “Casper Dollars” to students that are following the expectations. At the end of each week each grade level provides a reward for a certain amount of dollars collected. Teachers will collect and tally the dollar amount for each student for our monthly, school-wide reward.
