Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports
At Barry Goldwater High School we are implementing a school-wide positive behavior
support system. This system includes a framework of proactive practices for
communicating, defining, teaching and reinforcing appropriate behaviors. It will allow
us to provide a positive school environment in which every member feels healthy,
safe, engaged, supported and challenged.
What does the positive behavior support system look like at Barry
Goldwater High School?
We will be using three consistent school expectations:
We have posted these expectations throughout the campus. Teachers will be using
lesson plans to review and define these three expectations with our students for all
areas of the school (cafeteria, common area, classroom, etc.). To reinforce these
expectations, students will receive individual “i Own It” tickets if they are observed
exhibiting positive behaviors. These positive behavior tickets will be used for
drawings throughout the school year in which students can receive prizes. All
students that earn tickets will be invited to our quarterly campus celebrations.
How can you be a partner in this effort?
We want you to be a partner in helping us make our school a more positive place for
our children to learn. We ask that you review the campus-wide expectations with your
child/children and help encourage these behaviors in our community. Additional
ways to be involved are: using the expectations in your home, reminding your child of
the expectations before they leave each day, making sure that your child comes to
school on time every day, as well as asking them if they followed the rules that day
and if they received any “i Own it” tickets.
