Positive Behavior Intervention and Support


What is School-wide PBIS?

One of the foremost advances in school-wide discipline is the emphasis on school-wide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments. Instead of using a piecemeal approach of individual behavioral management plans, a continuum of positive behavior support for all students within a school is implemented in areas including the classroom and non-classroom settings (such as hallways, buses, and restrooms). Positive behavior support is an application of a behaviorally-based systems approach to enhance the capacity of schools, families, and communities to design effective environments that improve the link between research-validated practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occurs. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary (school-wide), secondary (classroom), and tertiary (individual) systems of support that improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, work, recreation) for all children and youth by making targeted behaviors less effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional.

At Northside  our current PBIS system includes: Town Hall Meetings, Procedures, YDI and RTI, along with classroom procedures and Guided Language Aquisition and Development (GLAD) that support positive behavior.

Parents and interested ALT residents are invited to attend a Bike to School Safety Meeting in the ALT Gallery on Wednesday July 23rd at 7:00.  Bill Jensen will discuss plans for escorting students safely to Northside Elementary.  Signups for a volunteer escort program will be taken along with a proposed schedule.  Plans for a bicycle safety riding event will be discussed as well.  The first day of school is August 19th.   Please RSVP at 885-6526.

Class Lists and Assignments

Northside staff and parents work hard to establish class lists prior to the school year ending. Teachers and parents meet in the Spring to discuss matriculation and learning needs for the Fall for each individual student.  Summer is used to order materials and prepare classrooms with supplies. Teachers hand craft items and label areas (cubbies) for learners over the summer so they are prepared to focus on and welcome learners personally on the first day of school. As new students may enroll in the first weeks of school we ask that students and parents demonstrate patience while classes are established. Please contact Wendy Westsmith AFTER August 29th if you have questions regarding your student's placement. You will receive a response within 24 hours. Thank you.
