B. Gale Wilson uses the PBIS model to teach and support good behavior, while addressing inappropriate behavior in a logical and data driven format. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Support.
A key strategy of the PBIS process is prevention. The majority of students follow the school’s expectations, but are never acknowledged for their positive behavior. Through instruction, comprehension and regular practice, all teachers and staff members will use a consistent set of behavior expectations and rules. Every Wednesday, G. Gale Wilson is on an "Advisory Schedule" where the last period of the day (Advisory) will be used to teach a positive behavior lesson and go over school wide rules and expectations.
When some students do not respond to teaching of the behavioral rules, we will view it as an opportunity for re-teaching, not just punishment. Students who are demonstrating positive behavior will receive ROAR cards (ROAR = Respect, Opportunity, Achievement, Responsibility), which they can spend at the student store every Wednesday after school.
