Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS)
Sierra Verde, along with all DVUSD schools, will continue to implement a Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) school safety system to support student behavior and classroom management. Our students and staff follow the following behavior expectations: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Kind.
Sierra Verde has implemented PBIS Rewards for the 2022-2023 school year. PBIS is an evidence-based framework used by schools to improve school culture and student behavior, promoting a safe environment for learning. A key aspect of PBIS is focusing on more positive behaviors and less on negative behaviors. PBIS Rewards is a Software-as-a-Service solution that provides an automated schoolwide PBIS management system. PBIS Rewards simplifies the tracking of the PBIS framework within SV. Our staff and administration can clearly see how teachers are utilizing PBIS and how PBIS is improving the culture daily. Our PBIS Rewards store incentives students to earn points and spend them on prizes. 22-23 will be our second year utilizing PBIS Rewards.
