    At Caln, we also implement School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS). School Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports is a system of tools and strategies for defining, teaching, acknowledging appropriate behavior, and correcting inappropriate behavior. The focus of SW-PBIS is to be a preventative program which will shift the focus from negative behaviors to positive expectations and behaviors. 

     

    A team from Caln Elementary School began the process of creating our Positive Behavior Support Plan and behavioral expectations during the Spring of 2019.  These supports include defined behavioral expectations, lessons to teach the expectations to students, an acknowledgement system for appropriate behaviors, and support and interventions for students that may be having difficulties within the educational setting.

     

    With the implementation, staff and school teams meet to evaluate the implementation data to determine areas of need, areas of strength, or to focus on and develop a strategic plan to target specific behaviors which may require additional instruction or support.

     

    The four main elements in SW-PBIS Include:

    1. Supporting social competence and Academic Achievement

    2. Supporting Decision Making

    3. Supporting Student Behavior

    4. Supporting Staff Behavior

     

    The PBIS Team and Staff at Caln Elementary School will support positive behavior to maximize academic achievement for all students and acknowledge appropriate behavior and behavioral expectations. We want to ensure that we create a positive experience for all students and provide them opportunities to learn from appropriate behaviors, rather than punitively assign consequences for negative behaviors. We want to ensure we are structuring our day to ensure success of students. We want to Teach expectations. We want to observe students by circulating and scanning the environment. We want to ensure we have positive interactions with students. We want to ensure we correct misbehavior and allow for students to practice the appropriate behavioral expectations.

     

    Behavioral Expectations Through PBIS

    Caln Elementary School has three behavioral expectations for all students:

    • Be Responsible
    • Be Respectful
    • Be Safe

    We are building new routines and memories at Caln and ask for your support and help in our efforts. Please ask you student about ways they can live the Caln Experience at home and in the Community. Finally, your involvement in the Caln Community is important to our students’ success. Please join the PTA, participate in Back-to-School Night, attend parent/teacher conferences, applaud during student performances and be proud of your student’s accomplishments, small or large. The entire Caln Community is dedicated to the success of all of our students!
