What is PBIS?
PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports) is a school-wide commitment to teaching students appropriate behavior, acknowledging them when they get it right, and supporting them when they don’t.

- We love parent volunteers to help with activities. Please contact your child's teacher if you would like to volunteer.
Office Discipline Referrals (ODR)
- Staff complete the ODR form when students are not following our formula for success Responsible, Respectful and Safe.
- These forms will show the time, date, location, possible motivation, type of behavior (minor or major), others involved, teacher response, and administrator response.
- The information from these forms in entered in SWIS and is review monthly by our PBIS Tier I teams. The team uses the information to monitor how our students are doing behaviorally. We make changes in school procedures based on the information from the ODR.
- As a way to promote learning and growth we only send home ODRs in which the student has engaged in a major behavior.
- We ask that parents read the form, sign it and return it to school the next day.
- Please know that signing the ODR form only lets us know you saw the form not that you agree or disagree.
- Attached is a copy of the form.
- Please call us at 778-4821 if you have any questions.
