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. At Wood Elementary School, students can win tickets and prizes for great behavior through "The Winning Ticket" program.
Students demonstrating PBIS behavior are recognized and celebrated throughout the year.
Wood received the 2017 Merit Award from the PBISaz Achievement Awards.
The vision of Wood Elementary School is that we commit to be problem solvers, motivated to reach beyond our maximum potential by growing academically, emotionally, and socially in a diverse and safe instructional environment. Our mission is for our Wood Wolves, both students and staff, to be leaders of the PACK – Positively Acquiring Continuous Knowledge! Both the mission and vision at Wood Elementary School tie directly to the implementation of our school-wide PBIS. For more detail, please visit http://pbisaz.org/2017-achievement-award-winners/.
