PBIS at Napoleon Jr/Sr. High School


At Napoleon Junior/Senior High, the main focus of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is to provide a clear system for all expected behaviors. Through PBIS we will work to create and maintain a positive, productive, and safe environment in which ALL school community members (administration, faculty/staff, parents and students) have clear expectations and understandings of their role in the educational process.

Proactive Approach to School-Wide Discipline

This school-wide system of supporting positive behavior focuses on a team-based system approach and teaching appropriate behavior to all students in the school. The goal of PBIS at Napoleon
Junior/Senior High is to accomplish the following:
1. Behavioral Expectations are Defined. Behavioral expectations are clearly defined in positive, simple rules in the Code of Conduct:
• Be Respectful—Be mindful of the people, places, and things around me.
• Be Responsible— Follow through and take control of your success.
• Be Safe—Keep yourself and others out of harm's way.
2. Behavior Expectations are Taught. The behavioral expectations are taught to all students at the beginning of the school year and throughout the year as needed. Teaching staff is provided with behavioral lesson plans designed to help “teach” students the expected behaviors. The general rule is presented, the rationale for the rule is discussed, positive examples (“right way”) are described and rehearsed, and negative examples (“wrong way”) are described and modeled. Students are given the opportunity to practice the “right way” until they demonstrate fluent performance.
3. Appropriate Behaviors are Acknowledged. Once appropriate behaviors have been taught, they need to be acknowledged on a regular basis. Through PBIS we have designed a formal
system for faculty/staff to consistently recognize and reward students who demonstrate expected behaviors.
4. Behavioral Errors are Corrected Proactively and are recorded. Students, faculty/staff, and administrators will be able to predict what will occur when behavioral errors are identified. A
School-Wide Information System (SWIS) has been put into place for staff to document incidents managed by staff and office. The Student Behavior Management Flowchart is used to help
faculty/staff distinguish major from minor behavioral incidents and when to document these behaviors.
5. Decisions About Behavior Management is Data Based. One of the most important features of PBIS is the use of a data management system to track discipline incidents. The data will be used by the PBIS Team to help determine the type of incidents that are occurring, where, when, and who is involved. The data will eliminate the guesswork from the decision making process about what is and what is not working in the school’s behavior management system. Data reports can enable administration to devote resources and time to the precise people, place, and school day period that need them.
