Cougars' Expected Behavior:

Let's See that Cougar PRIDE!!


PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports. PBIS is not a program, rather it is a “systems approach” for establishing the social culture and individualized behavior support needed for schools to achieve both social and academic success for all students. Evidence based features include:

  • Define expectations and explicit instruction of those behavior/social expectations
  • Acknowledgement of positive behavior
  • Ongoing collection and use of data for decision making 
  • Administrative Leadership/Structures (coordination of services and alignment of systems)

We believe that all core instruction (intervention and support) starts in the general education classroom. We think that all students can learn and that all educators want to make a difference. In addition, most students will succeed when a positive school culture is promoted, informative corrective feedback is provided, academic success is maximized, and use of pro-social skills is acknowledged. 

When student problem behavior is unresponsive to preventive school-wide and classroom-wide procedures, information about the student’s behavior is used to:

  1. Understand why the problem behavior is occurring (function).
  2. Strengthen more acceptable alternative behaviors (social skills).
  3. Remove antecedents and consequences that trigger and maintain problem behavior, respectively.
  4. Add antecedents and consequences that trigger and maintain acceptable alternative behaviors.

We believe in the big ideas of a Professional Learning Community:

  1. We accept learning as the fundamental purpose of our school and therefore are willing to examine all practices in light of their impact on learning. 
  2. We are committed to working together to achieve our collective purpose. 
  3. We assess our effectiveness on the basis of results rather than only intentions.
  4. We seek relevant data and information and use that data/information to promote ongoing and continuous improvement.
