Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) is a systemic approach to proactive, school-wide behavior based on a Response to Intervention (RtI) model. PBIS applies evidence-based programs, practices and strategies for all students to increase academic performance, improve safety, decrease problem behavior, and establish a positive school culture. Summerwind staff implements PBIS through building on existing strengths, complementing and organizing current programming and strategies. The PBIS model has been successfully implemented in thousands of schools in over 40 states, resulting in dramatic reductions in disciplinary interventions and increases in academic achievement.
Summerwind Students are encouraged to be Responsible, Respectful and Ready through receiving Growth Tickets. Growth Tickets can be spent on Classroom Rewards and School Store Specials. Students who are successful during the week also Celebrate with fun activities during Funtastic Friday.
Students who are struggling to follow school/classroom rules or get along with their peers will receive additional reminders of safety and social expectations and/or skill building lessons during Growth Time.
