PBIS

Make Ben Franklin School Positive!

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a tiered systems approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture and needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.  We have been utilizing this system at Franklin School for about 5 years.

Universal/Tier 1:

  • PBIS is our school-wide system of support  to promote strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create a positive school environment.
  • Students receive Bear Bucks for being responsible, respectful, and safe throughout the school year. When the building reaches a certain goal a school-wide celebration is earned.
  • Monthly lessons focus on a specific behavior (for example: walking quietly in the hallway, showing respect to others, etc.) and can be rewarded at an individual or classroom level.

Secondary/Tier 2:

  • If a child needs an extra level of support, they can be placed in a positive intervention support such as; check-in/check-out, social/academic instructional group, mentoring, etc.

Please contact Heather Bruch (hbruch@d41.org) or Kirk Samples (ksamples@d41.org) for any questions you have about PBIS.  You can also visit www.pbisillinois.org for more information.

PBIS Update November 2015

 

-Reminder that the Shoe Drive continues now thru November 20th.  Please drop off your gently used shoes at the Main Office at Ben Franklin.

 

– PBIS introduced the first Bullying Lessons in the classroom. The students learned about STOP, WALK, and TALK. STOP – ask the person to stop in a firm voice. WALK – walk away if the person is not listening. TALK – go to an adult to get support. This will also be reviewed during Franklin Families.

 

– Franklin Families will meet on November 20th at 11:30. The lesson will be on Empathy by incorporating the game of Charades with the students.  The leading question will be “How would you feel if…..?”If time allows, students will share on what they are thankful for this time of year.

 

– The 4th grade PBIS helpers have created a video on Empathy. It will be shown in the lunchroom before Fall Break.
