G.O. Bailey Elementary, along with other schools in our district, is implementing PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports). PBIS is a framework for helping schools in organizing research based behavioral interventions that enhances behavior outcomes for all students, and ultimately leading to student success. It is a proactive system where positive behavior is recognized.
A clip chart is used to help with classroom behavior. Students can move their clip up for showcasing good behavior and down for inappropriate type of behavior. Students are given the opportunity to correct their behavior and move their clip up.
PBIS lessons are created to teach students throughout the year what behaviors are expected at G.O. Bailey Elementary School.
G.O. Bailey students are expected to:
As a school, we have defined a set of school wide expectations for different locations in our building. They are posted in that specific location. Students are rewarded with Bailey Bucks when the expected behavior is displayed.
Once students receive Bailey Bucks, they can use those bucks to “purchase” various rewards in the school store. Students are rewarded these bucks in their classrooms as well.
