Positive Behavior Intervention and Support
In the past, school-wide discipline has focused mainly on reacting to specific student misbehavior by implementing punishment-based strategies including reprimands, loss of privileges, office referrals, suspensions, and expulsions. Research has shown that the implementation of punishment, especially when it is used inconsistently and in the absence of other positive strategies, is ineffective. Introducing, modeling, and reinforcing positive social behavior is an important part of a student’s educational experience. Teaching behavioral expectations and rewarding students for following them is a much more positive approach than waiting for misbehavior to occur before responding. The purpose of school-wide PBIS is to establish a climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm. Please see our PBIS page for additional information.
Our mascot is Jazzy the Jaguar. He wears his “SPOTS” every day, and so do our students!
To support PBS, Bayshore has implemented school-wide expectations.
Treat others with respect
Show how to be responsible
When students are “caught” wearing their SPOTS, they earn Jazzy Cash. Jazzy Cash can be saved to purchase specific items or participate in special events, such as raffles, bingo, school dances and much more.
Celebrating the success of our students is important to us! We have several recognition programs:
