Here at Stephen Girard Elementary School, we are
Compassionate, Accountable, Respectful, and Engaged!
PBIS is a decision-making framework for school systems to implement in order to improve student
academic and behavioral outcomes by using universal language and expectations, consistent
behavioral teaching practices, consistent behavioral response guidelines, and data to guide procedural
and policy decisions.
Research suggests that by having consistent expectations across the school, explicitly teaching behavioral
expectations, acknowledging expected behaviors, and handling behavioral violations consistently, the
school environment can be positively impacted. PBIS is not a curriculum or a single intervention – it is a
change in the school system’s climate.
Students can earn special colored tickets for displaying good behavior each month. At the end of every month, there is a reward for those students that have earned 15 or more of the month’s tickets! Regular tickets are given out that can be used to purchase items at our School Store each Friday morning in the lunch room.
