One of the district initiatives is for every school to develop a School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention & Support plan (SWPBIS). We wanted a systematic way to teach and reward positive behaviors, so we developed the following pledge:
Whenever students display one of the positive behaviors listed in our pledge, a staff member gives them a "ROCK Star Cash" coupon. The students write their name on it and place their cash coupons in a bin located in the school lobby. At the end of each month, 4 ROCK Star Students are picked from each K-2 grade. Student photos are showcased in the school’s "Rock Star Hall of Fame" for the rest of the year.
