Positive Behavior Intervention System
Edinbrook Elementary 2014-2015

"Every kid needs a champion!"
What does PBIS look like at Edinbrook Elementary?
James Comer says that no significant learning can occur with a significant relationship.
Washington Carver says all learning is understanding relationships.
"Kids don't learn from people they don't like. "
You have to change the way kids think about themselves. Focus on having students develop a "growth mindset". This is based on the belief that your basic qualities are things you can cultivate through your efforts.

"I am somebody. I was somebody when I came. I'll be a better somebody when I leave. I am powerful, and I am strong. I deserve the education that I get here. I have things to do, people to impress, and places to go."
We need to positively reinforce our students. We need to be their "champions."

"Your on a roll. You got two right. You didn't miss them all. And when we review this, won't you do better"?

"18 sucks all the life out of you. +2 said, I ain't all bad".

* Personal Experience (6th grade, culture, science experiment, growth)
Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.
Every adult needs a champion too!
Reflect on the questions below.
1. Who is your champion?
2. Who are you champion for?

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a positive, proactive approach to preventing problem behavior. Students are taught clear expectations based upon behavioral goals agreed-upon by stakeholders. The behavioral expectations are taught just like any academic subject.
Four Components:
Establish Expectations
Explicitly Teach Expectations
Correct Problem Behavior

Edinbrook's Core Values
We want to switch from a reactive approach...

...to a proactive approach
Applying the four components of PBIS…

Research Based - Use of PBIS to maintain appropriate social behavior will create a safe learning culture and climate for all staff & students

Schools using PBIS components see a decrease in referrals by 40-60% by year four of implementation

A review of research on PBIS effectiveness showed a 90% reduction in problem behavior in over half of the studies and the problem behavior stopped completely in over 26% of the studies
Call & Response Activity
This means…

If students do not know how to behave in the classroom or a common area of our school…

…it is the combined responsibility of the teacher, educational support personnel, administrators and all other building adults TO TEACH AND PRACTICE the expected behaviors of our matrix.
Enthusiastic grade level representatives to act in a leadership role to continue to move this work forward at EB...
What is the recess/lunch structure?
Kindergarten - Lunch/Recess

Grades 1st-3rd - DEAR, Lunch, Recess

Grades 4th-6th - Study Hall, Lunch, Recess
"Peaceful Playgrounds"


1. Conflict Resolution
2. Rules
3. Equipment
4. Expectations
5. Designs
Conflict Resolution
What is it? A method(s) in which to settle conflict.

Following Responsive Classroom this is taught within the first 4 to 5 weeks of school.

When? During morning meeting
DEAR and Study Hall Expectations
Lunchroom Noise Level System:
-ESP's will be provided voice level cards stating a O or 1.

-If a half of a table is needing a reminder to quiet their voice ESP will give them a verbal warning.

-If an ESP needs to remind that same table to quiet down they will give them a 1 card.

-If the half of a table needs to be revisited again ESP will show them a level 0 card and that half of a table to whole table will be at a level 0 the rest of lunch.

***They have been instructed to not engage the students and provide only nonverbal cues.
Reflection Table
Step 1 - Private redirection
Step 2 - Quick conversation (mention next step)
Step 3 - Redirection Table
**Allow student wait time to get themselves to the redirection table (student at table the rest of lunch)
Step 4 - Refusing direction
B. If it warrants...walkie for a social conference
Site Improvement Plan: Behavior
A common day a week for staff and students to teach social/emotional development at a classroom level determined by our site data.
It might look like:
A whole class lesson
A tiered intervention for a small group of students
A morning meeting message and/or activity
Reteaching a common area of the matrix
Mini Boot Camp

The exit directions for student expectations should be projected during DEAR/Study Hall. A student should have the job of turning the projector off prior to lunch.
Voice Levels At Edinbrook
O - Voices are Silent
1- Talking Voice
2 - Presentation/Outside
Five Point Scale
Can be used to help students become aware of their emotions.
