St. Lucie Elementary is a PBIS School
PBIS is Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports
Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports is a collaborative (team-based), educative, proactive and functional process to developing effective interventions for problem behavior. The positive refers to a change of focus from reactive, constantly pointing out what students did wrong (negatives), to proactive teaching and recognizing what children are doing right (positives).
PBIS acknowledges and rewards students for following school-wide expectations and rules. Appropriate behavior is acknowledged after the fact. The rewards are earned, not offered as payoff in exchange for good behavior.
S = Strive to Do Your Best
T = Take Responsibility for Your Actions
A = Always Follow School & Classroom Rules
R = Respect Yourself & Others
Students earn Star Bucks for modeling our school-wide STAR expectations. Students then use those Star Bucks to shop in our school store and participate in monthly events.
