Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) are used to improve academic and behavioral outcomes, ensuring that all students have access to the most effective behavioral practices and interventions possible. PBIS provides a school wide framework for achieving these outcomes. PBIS is a decision making framework that guides selection, integration and implementation of the best evidence based behavioral practices and interventions for improving behavioral outcomes to ensure academic success in all students.
The core of Rover's PBIS system is RAMS behavior:
* Respect self, others and environment
* Accept responsibility
* Make good choices
* Soar to the challenge
Students demonstrating PBIS behavior are recognized and celebrated throughout the year.
Rover received the 2017 Bronze Award from the PBISaz Achievement Awards.
With PBIS at Rover for the past 2 years, we have seen overall behavioral growth, academic growth, and positive climate improvement throughout our campus. We attribute our progress to PBIS in many ways. Our new Behavior Management Flowchart, which identifies a clear distinction between student behaviors managed by the teacher versus student behaviors managed by the office administration, has improved communication between administration and teachers and has provided teachers with many preventative tools for increasing positive behaviors.
