This year Sierra Verde, will continue our implmentation of 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.Sierra Verde will continue to use GRIT cards in our upper grades and VIPER Cash in our lower grades as our PBIS system.
