G.W. Carver's PBIS Plan

What is PBIS? PBIS is teaching behavioral expectations in the same manner as any of our core subjects. The system includes various proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to promote a positive school environment. It also rewards those students who consistently demonstrate our motto, be respectful, be responsible, and be prepared!

Reward Programs

STAR Students: Each classroom teacher will pick a student of the month from their classroom. This student should be one that has exhibited positive behavior for the month or the student that has shown an improvement in behavior. Teachers will submit the name at the end of each month and students will receive a special treat and recognition on the Star Student Bulletin Board.

Referral Free Classes/Buses: Classrooms and buses with zero office referrals will be recognized on morning announcements each week. Classes/buses who remain referral free for one month, will receive an incentive.  

Nine Week Incentives: Each nine weeks, students may participate in a scheduled event if they have met the PBIS expectations of their grade level for that time frame.  Please refer to your classroom teacher for what the expectations are at each grade level for participation.  Students who receive office or bus referrals will not be allowed to participate in the incentives.

Positive Office Referrals: Staff members will be using their Eagle Eyes to spot students following our school-wide PBIS expectations. When a student is spotted setting a good example, a staff member may write a Positive Office Referral for this student explaining the positive behavior exhibited. Then, administrators conference with the student and make a phone call to a family member to share the good news!
