This year Sierra Verde, along with all DVUSD schools, will be implementing a new Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) school safety system to support student behavior and classroom management. PBIS is a structure designed to ensure classroom management and student discipline are addressed in a positive, systematic way that supports the academic achievement of all students
The purpose of implementing PBIS is to:
* Approach student discipline in a proactive manner, modeling appropriate expectations and rewarding positive behaviors, decrease disruptive behaviors in classrooms, common areas, and all campus locations.
* Increase academic instructional time and administrator's leadership time.
* Improve school safety and positive school climate for staff, students, parents and community members.
* Track behavior data to determine the effectiveness and support we are providing for our students.
