If you’re like me and are having visions of Big Bird and Snuffy dance in your head, we are a little off. Instead, PBS is a behavior model much like RTI. Positive Behavior Support (PBS) positively praises students to yield desired behavior. Here is a link explaining more than you would ever want to know about the program! Beware: Information overload ahead!
I thought I would share some of our launching PBS documents for schools that are working within the PBS framework!
PBS Kickoff Note:
Each September this note goes home to families during Open House. We use returned slips to create a parent contact list. We use these parents to help facilitate our PBS Store and Parties throughout the year. (Our school has the most amazing parent that does the bulk of our PBS footwork for us!)
Each month students bring home a note similar to the one attached. Our goal is to explain our behavior expectations and monthly incentives to parents. Each note is a half sheet and helps us to enforce consequences.
Oh well! Back to the report card grind!! Ours are due Tuesday at noon…. I’ve done pretty much everything to avoid productivity! Hope these PBS notes could be of some use to you!
