PBIS- Positive Behavior Intervention Support

Last Updated: 8/26/2020 1:34 AM


POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION SUPPORT: Also known as PBIS, this is a positive and systemic approach of teaching children expectations in all areas of the school. At Bucks Hill School, the students are RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, and SAFE. Students are taught what the expectations are and what they look like throughout the building.  They are praised and rewarded with Bucks Hill bucks.  Students are expected to STAY ON THE GREEN.  Ask your child to explain what that means.  At the end of each month, students attend the school store to redeem their “bucks”.   At any time, a class may be praised for being “All Stars” by any adult in the building.  At the end of the month, the class that has the most All Stars, one class from Pre – K through 2 and another class from grades 3 – 5, will get a visit from the school mascot, “Lucky”.
