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. 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.
The Safe Organized Accountable Respectful (SOAR) program is used school wide to promote desired behaviors. Categories are developed in Dojo and used to track student’s progress according to SOAR expectations. Students are awarded prizes every Friday based on reaching the SOAR goal.
