 WHAT IS PBIS?

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports 
 
PBIS is a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum
that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes
for all students. 
 
What this really means is that we are focusing on:
-Identifying appropriate and expected behaviors.
-Teaching students what this means and looks like
in the middle school environment.
-Rewarding students who meet and display these
expectations on a consistent basis.
-Creating plans and assistance or interventions for those students who may have difficulty meeting the expectations. 
 
 
 
 
 
WHAT DOES PBIS LOOK LIKE AT NBMS?
 
We want all of our students to BE HAWKS:
 
H - HAVE RESPECT
A - ACT RESPONSIBLY
W - WORK TOGETHER
K - KEEP ON TASK 
 
 
 
HOW DO WE CELEBRATE OUR HAWKS?
 
Students who demonstrate that they are
HAWKS...
(Attendance, Attitude / Behavior, and Academics)
 
will be acknowledged for their hard work and
achievements every week on Friday morning.
 
Students can earn reward / social time during 
WIN Time ("What I Need") each Friday
if they have the following:
 
-no unexcused absences
-no major office discipline referrals
-no missing assignments
 
 Students are eligible for a longer 2 hour
School Wide Reward at the end of each quarter
if they have met the HAWK criteria above for
7 out of the 9 weeks in the quarter.  
 
They will ALSO receive a "HAWK CARD"
which gives them extra rewards and privileges
for the whole next quarter.
 

At any point, students can also receive an immediate

"Positive" by earning a HAWK HIGH 5! 
 
Students get a HAWK High 5 by demonstrating the
HAWK expectations.  Each staff member awards at least
2 of these to deserving students each week.
 
Students are then entered into a weekly drawing
and can win $10 cash, compliments of the

THANK YOU OPTIMISTS!
