Our PBIS Journey
Wick Elementary

Shavonna Johnson, Principal
Rob Baty, Title I Learning Specialist
Lisa Evitts, 2nd grade teacher/ PBIS facilitator

Teachers were removed from the problems
Classroom referrals were at a high
Stakeholders were concerned
Behaviors were not aligned with core values

It was time for a change because we were seeing predictable, reactive responses to behavior that focused on immediate relief for the teacher.
Student Engagement is one of our BEST behavior management tools
Character Education
Easy to change moral knowledge... difficult to change moral conduct

To change moral conduct...
Adults must model behavior
Students must experience academic success
Students must be taught social skills for success

ODRs By Location
Stakeholder Feedback
2013-2014 Parent Survey

92% agreed or strongly agreed that our school provides a safe learning environment.

5 parents mentioned PBIS as part of what they liked best at our school in the open-ended responses.
The effect size for total ODRs from the baseline year of 2010-2011 to the post year of 2013-2014 was -0.6 which represents a substantial decline in referrals
We searched for a way to create a school climate where all students felt safe, valued and respected. Our concerns were that:
The effect size for total bus ODRs from the baseline year of 2010-2011 to the post year of 2013-2014 was -0.38, which represents a substantial decline in bus referrals.
The effect size for total classroom ODRs from the baseline year of 2010-2011 to the post year of 2013-2014 was -1.16 which represents a substantial decline in classroom referrals.

We practiced
We continuously improved on incorporating teaching of the behavior expectations into our regular teaching routines.
