Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS)

over 3 years ago

Positive Student Behavior System

We want to ensure children know how to be successful, and we want them to learn in a safe and healthy environment.  This will be achieved through the adoption of the Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports (PBIS); a consistent school-wide positive support and discipline plan. This will include: teaching school rules and social-emotional skills; reinforcing appropriate student behavior; using effective classroom management and positive behavior support strategies; providing early intervention for misconduct and using appropriate consequences.  

Clover Flat School has three conceptual rules:

1.     Be Safe

2.     Be Respectful

3.     Be Responsible

Here are some examples:

  • Students will be safe by keeping their hands, feet, and objects to themselves.
  • Students will be respectful by using kind words to others
  • Students will be responsible by arriving to school on time with all their supplies.

All behaviors that people engage in can fall under these three categories. We will be refining these rules over the course of the year as students learn appropriate behaviors for school.  Continue to look for more information on PBIS each month.

Students who engage in severe behaviors that violate Education Code 48900 outlined in the Board Policy may be subject to suspension / expulsion.  Those acts are summarized on the backside of this page.  For the full version of the policy, please ask for a copy.
