Behavior Bobcat Expectations: Be Respectful Be Responsible Be Ready to Learn We use Class Dojo to track behavior in our classroom. Our school focuses on using P.B.I.S. (positive behavior intervention and support) strategies to encourage and recognize positive behavior. PBIS is an evidence-based, data-driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents, increase a schools sense of safety, and support improved academic outcomes. We teach behavior like we teach academics.

Teachers lead lessons about the SBCE Behavior Matrix. Behavior expectations are posted in all areas of the building. Behavior Behavior Students and classes are rewarded and recognized for appropriate behavior. PURR Tickets School Store Hallway Heroes
