Weatherbee Elementary has been a PBIS Model School since 2011

PBIS is is an evidence-based three-tiered framework to improve and integrate all of the data, systems, and practices affecting student outcomes every day. PBIS creates schools that support everyone – especially students with disabilities – for success!

At Weatherbee Elementary, Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) is an on going, collaborative, team-based, educative, proactive, and functional process to develop effective interventions for inappropriate behavior.

Weatherbee Elementary’s school-wide PBIS plan ensures that children have the opportunity to develop the skills and behaviors that will enable them to realize success as responsible adults. The plan focuses on four major expectations with specific behaviors for each as presented in the Mariner SAIL Expectations.

S- Self Control

A- Acts Responsibly

I- Is Respectful

L- Learn

On a daily basis, Weatherbee students are recognized for demonstrating the S.A.I.L expectations with specific, verbal praise and rewarding of a Mariner Dollar. Mariner Money is used to purchase various incentives such as a pencil, small toy, or classroom incentives. Classes are also recognized when each student in a class demonstrates the S.A.I.L expectations by earning Class Conch Coins. Each quarter, classes are rewarded based on their Conch Coins and celebrations include popcorn, cookies, or popsicles.
