In 2013-14, Rocky Hill Elementary School fully implemented a school-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) system. We closely tied our behavioral expectations to the six pillars of character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.

We encourage all students to be T.R.R.F.C.C.!

 

 

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based, data-driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents, increase a school’s sense of safety and support improved academic outcomes. More than 19,000 U.S. schools are implementing PBIS and saving countless instructional hours otherwise lost to discipline. The premise of PBIS is that continual teaching, combined with acknowledgement or feedback of positive student behavior will reduce unnecessary discipline and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety and learning. PBIS schools apply a multi-tiered approach to prevention, using disciplinary data and principles of behavior analysis to develop school-wide, targeted and individualized interventions and supports to improve school climate for all students. (OSEP Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports, 2009)

  • Consistently promote positively stated behavioral expectations

  • Actively teach them to students (focus lessons)

  • Acknowledge students who follow expectations on a regular basis

  • Collect data to document effectiveness

  • Establish set of consequences that are clear and consistent throughout the school
