    PBIS-Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports

    What is PBIS?

    • PBIS is a process for creating safer and more effective schools.  
    • It is a school-wide design for discipline
    • It is a preventative/proactive approach
    • PBIS focuses on improving a school’s ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students.
    • A data driven program.  Our team analyzes data each month.
    • It uses consistent consequences for problem behavior.
    • It is a program that can be changed based on feedback we receive.

     

    Why do we need PBIS?

    • Teachers and students deserve to work in a positive environment.
    • Students who behave well deserve to get most of the attention, not the ones who misbehave.
    • Teachers deserve to teach the lesson they intended without major behavioral disruptions.
    • Teachers, students, and parents deserve to to know the levels of discipline in a school building.
    • Teachers deserve to know what the discipline data looks like at our school and be part of the decision making process.

     

    The 3 Major Components of PBIS

    • Teaching appropriate behavior in all settings
    • Interventions when behavior expectations are not met
    • Recognition when behaviors are met

     

    What does discipline look like at Ramsey?

    • When a child fails to meet the behavior expectations of our school, one of three things can happen.  Depending on the behavior, the adult can redirect or teach to the expected behavior without documenting the incident.  Another option is for the adult to fill out a ‘minor form’. These forms can be used as warning and can also include a range of consequences such as a conversation with the child, moving seats in the classroom, losing recess, and/or calling home.  If a child receives 4 minor forms in a month, they are referred to one of the administrators with a ‘major form’. Certain behaviors can warrant a child being given a major form right away. Consequences for major forms are given by one of the administrators and involve a phone call home.  Examples include the loss of recess(es) or suspension when necessary. Our goal for PBIS is to minimize the number of ‘major forms’ by teaching to our expectations and rewarding positive behavior throughout the building. We strive for consistency in our response to negative behavior.
     

    What positive approaches are used at Ramsey?

    • Our team works diligently to reward positive behavior. Our primary incentive for students is rewarding "above and beyond" behavior beaker bucks. These bucks can be used at our bi-weekly beaker buck store to 'buy' prizes! From time to time, we also enjoy rewarding entire classrooms with things like extra PE time or a dance party! 

     

    Parents,

    In order to make certain all our students receive appropriate educational supports, Coeur d’Alene School District 271 conducts a mid-year residency verification. Residency is defined as where your family sleeps at night. Has your residency changed since September 4, 2018? If yes AND if any of the following statements are true for your family, please contact your school counselor or the Coeur d’Alene School District McKinney-Vento Liaison, James Curb at 208-664-8241 ext. 10061 or jcurb@cdaschools.org for more information about educational services that may be available to your student(s) and family.

    • We are doubled up with friends, grandparents, or other family due to economic condition.

    • We are living in transitional housing.

    • We are sleeping in public places or abandoned buildings.

    • We are living in a car, trailer or campground.

    • We are living in a home for pregnant or unwed mothers without another place in which to live.
