PBIS is our school-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports program. Our goal is to provide proactive strategies for teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create a positive school environment. A range of positive behavior supports for all students is implemented in the classroom and non-classroom settings.
PBIS is a team-based approach to teaching expectations and preventing problem behaviors. It also teaches and encourages respectful and responsible behavior to all students. Our goal is to create a safe and effective learning environment by reducing discipline issues and increasing instructional time. PBIS is designed to support all students and all staff.
School-wide PBIS provides a positive focus to encourage desirable student behaviors. A set of universal expectations for behavior, positively stated, are established for all students in all locations of our school.
We strive to improve student competencies in the following areas. Recognition activities will be aligned to meet these goals:
We have GMS PRIDE:
P - Positive
R - Respectful
