Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support System (PBIS) Expectations for Behavior and Academics
A core value of the CES community is the creation and maintenance of a peaceful and respectful learning environment. We believe that all children and adults have the right to learn in an atmosphere that is free from distraction, fear or discomfort. Furthermore, we know that for maximum learning, students and staff must know that school is a safe and orderly place. School Norms for CES have been developed to protect these rights.
Please take the time to review our Expectations for Student Behavior and Academics with your child (found in our Student/Parent Handbook). An effective way is to read the rules together and discuss why each one is necessary.
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive, systemwide approach to creating and sustaining culturally acceptable behavioral expectations needed within the school. The guiding principles of good character (SHARK: safe, honest, accepting, respectful, kind, successful) are modeled and practiced daily with monthly focus on each strand. In regulating student behavior, school personnel will be fair, consistent, and judicious in the administration of the disciplinary consequences. Supports will be provided in order for students to achieve socially, emotionally, physically, and
academically within this framework.
