What is PBIS?
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) describes methods used to identify and support desired behaviors in the school setting. This program is research-based and looks different in every school. PBIS seeks to reduce or eliminate poor behavior school-wide through the encouragement of positive behaviors.
Over the first few weeks of school, students will participate in lesson designed to teach expectations both in the classroom and throughout common areas in the school. These expectations are reinforced during the year, and rewards are given to students demonstrating appropriate behaviors.
PBIS at CGMS
The student expectation is STARS (Safe, Tolerant, Respectful, and Smart.) We believe these are the characteristics of a true Saint, and encourage all students to practice and recognize these qualities in themselves and others. Students who do not meet these expectations receive infractions.
