Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports
Geddes Elementary School has begun school-wide implementation of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). We create and sustain school-wide, classroom, and individual systems of support that improve the educational environment for all children. Our aim is to explicitly teach behavioral expectations and then recognize the positive behaviors shown by students.
By implementing PBIS, we hope to reduce school and classroom inappropriate behaviors, disruptions, and to educate all students about acceptable school behaviors. Our PBIS implementation plan includes clearly defined outcomes (Behavior Expectations), research-validated practices (ROAR Rewards/Awards, supportive administrative systems Corrective Behavior Plan), and information for problem solving behaviors.
Behavior Code of Conduct
The school has the responsibility to clearly communicate and enforce student behavior in a fair, consistent, and supportive manner. Parents have the responsibility to reinforce the expectations of the school and to help their children become responsible citizens. Students have the responsibility to follow the code of conduct and to make good choices.
At Geddes we want all our Grizzlies to ROAR! All students are explicitly taught what it looks like to be Ready, to Own your actions, to have an A+ttitude, and to be Respectful in every area of our school. Our staff members will refer to these as the R.O.A.R Expectations. These behavior expectations are clearly displayed in our classrooms and around the school.
