Hello Rankin Families:
For those of you who may not be familiar with P.B.S. here is an introduction.
What is it?
or Positive Behavior Support is a process used here at Rankin to
understand and resolve behavior problems our students are having. We
try to understand why this behavior is occurring and come up with
strategies to prevent the negative behavior, by replacing it with a
Who sends students to P.B.S.?
staff member may send a student to P.B.S. This includes teachers,
tutors, lunchroom and playground supervisors, secretaries and
custodians. They will fill out a referral form with all the
information about the student’s behavior; which the student brings to
P.B.S... Usually a student is sent to P.B.S. after they have been
given several warnings, have changed their classroom behavior card 3
times or if the behavior is extremely disruptive, disrespectful or
there is physical contact with another student.
What happens in P.B.S.?
students come to P.B.S. we will discuss what happened then talk about
making positive changes to the student’s behavior. The student will
write a plan about what happened, how his/her behavior should change,
what the changed behavior will look like and finally how we will know
the plan is working. Plans are set up to match the student’s grade and
ability. The P.B.S facilitator will work with the students to make
sure they have made a good plan; we will review the plan and talk about
it. The P.B.S. facilitator will call home, so the parent is aware that
the student was in P.B.S. the plan will be coming home for the parent
to review, sign and return to the classroom teacher.
goal of P.B.S. is to teach students positive skills to use to create a
positive school learning environment for all. We believe by
introducing, modeling and reinforcing positive behaviors your child’s
educational experience will be greatly enhanced.
If you have any
questions, concerns or any information that you would like me to be
aware of now or in the future; please don’t hesitate to call.
We are here to work with you and your children to help make this a positive year at Rankin.
