• PBIS Expectations & Recognition

    Step 1: Identify and Teach Expected Behaviors 

    Behavior expectations are created by campus PBIS committees to provide clear expectations for staff and students in various areas of the campuses. These behavior expectations are posted throughout the school campus and are used to teach expected behaviors to students. The matrix provides specific examples of what behaviors look like in different settings. Students are provided with lessons and special kick-off activities to teach the desired behaviors along with practicing the behaviors. 

    Step 2: Positively Reinforce and Acknowledge Expected Behaviors

    Campus staff will acknowledge when students present expected behaviors at school. Verbal acknowledgement and PBIS points will be given to students when they follow expectations. For example, including others at recess or behaving appropriately in the restroom.

    Step 3: Responding to Negative Behaviors

    In addition to teaching and acknowledging positive behaviors, Clint ISD campuses will use a variety of interventions when unwanted behaviors occur.

    • Verbal reminders and warnings

    • Time to reflect upon behaviors

    • Reteaching behavior expectations

    • Behavior contracts and/or charts

    • Check In and Check Out with campus staff

    Step 4: Family Connections

    Parent & family engagement is an important part of PBIS and focuses on building our school communities through positive relationships to support the needs of all students. Families are encouraged to participate in PBIS events, activities, and student behavior planning meetings. Schools are focusing on positive communications to include positive office referrals, positive calls home, and newsletters.
