Positive Behavior Interventions & Support (PBIS)
PBIS is a positive, proactive approach to shaping behavior. Students are given a clear set of expectations based upon behavioral goals chosen by all staff members. The behavioral expectations are taught just like an academic subject. The expectations are modeled and then practiced by by our students. Motivational incentives are identified and employed to propel expected behaviors. Ongoing data collection and analysis occurs to help guide and direct behavioral interventions.
The Wayne Thomas PBIS Mission Statement of Purpose
Wayne Thomas Elementary School is dedicated to fostering a safe, positive, and respectful school culture where every student's behavioral, social, and academic success are equally important.
Our expectations are that we will teach and positively reinforce these expectations throughout the school year. Our expectations for all WT students are that all Wayne Thomas Wildcats:
- Respect Self
- Respect Others
- Always Learning
- Responsible Choices
We believe that by helping students practice good behavior, we will build a school community where all students have an environment where they can succeed and grow.
