What is PBIS?
PBIS is a proactive systems approach to establishing the behavorial supports for all scholars in the school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success. PBIS establishes a three tiered system of support, and a problem-solving process to enhance the capactiy of schools to effectively educate all scholars.
The Balmoral staff believes that schools can only be successful when they help scholars grow academically, socially, and emotionally. In order for this to happen, it is important that we establish an environment that allows scholars to grow. It is our goal to create an atmosphere of learning by setting clear expectations and directly teaching scholars about those expectations.
Our plan is based on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). We have a team of staff and parents that meets monthly to go over the referral data and make changes where needed. Our plan is based upon six components. They are as follows:
Lesson plans used to teach the scholars appropriate behavioral expectations.
*Cool Tool Assemblies:
Assemblies where the Cool Tools are taught to scholars.
Bucks scholars can earn for proper behavior on the bus. Drivers give these out to scholars.
Slips earned by scholars for modeling appropriate behavior.
* Pawmart Store Coins:
These are coins scholars can earn from staff members. The coins can be used to purchase items from the Pawmart Store.
*Office Referral Slips:
Referral slips are written by staff when a scholar does not display appropriate behavior.
Tier Two Interventions
All schools in Crete-Monee School District 201U develop and implement schoolwide
systems to promote positive student behavior. As part of that process, teams
meet monthly to review school, grade level, and individual scholar behavior data. If
a scholar's behavior data indicates that they may require more support, we will
provide it in the form of Tier 2 interventions. These interventions are check incheck
out (CICO), Social Academic Instructional Groups (SAIG), and brief
Check in-Check out (CICO)
- The goal of CICO is to provide behavioral and academic
supports to scholars. This daily intervention will provide scholars with regular
reminders and feedback so he/she can remember to follow Balmoral behavior
expectations at all times. The scholar's teacher will rate his/her behavior
according to a daily behavior progress report. The scholar's in this program are
provided with incentives for positive behavior.
These are skill-building groups used to support scholars in the school
environment. There are three types of skills-building groups. 1) Pro-social skills
(replacement behaviors for avoidance, withdrawal, etc.) Friendship skills/Social
Awareness/Relationship building 2) Problem-solving skills (replacement behaviors
for fighting, arguing, etc. ) Conflict Resolution skills/Anger Management skills/Self
Management 3) Academic Behavior skills (replacement behaviors for getting out
of seat, poor study habits, talking out during instruction, etc)
Study/Organizational Skills/Focus/Self-Management skills/Responsible Decision-
Brief Behavior Plan
– The goal is to meet as a team and develop a plan to support
individual scholars. The plans are based on scholars’ areas of need. It focuses on
one area of concern and it is completed after we have used the above interventions
