Principal's Message

From the Principal

PBIS—Edison’s Rudder to Respect

 

The Edison community has embarked on an incredible journey; building a community of respect and using Positive Behavioral and Intervention Supports (PBIS) to do so!  This process is one in which the principal, faculty, and staff work together to create expectations, design teaching strategies, and implement reinforcement opportunities for students.  When PBIS works well everyone prospers!


 

Each year our PBIS Team comes together to evaluate the current year and to plan for the upcoming year ahead.  This month we revised our School Matrix.  This is our roadmap to teach and reinforce the positive behaviors that we are looking for at Edison.  This matrix is our One of the main platforms of this work comes in the first word—Positive!  We endeavor to create meaningful and natural expectations for students that focus on our three school rules:

roadmap for developing our teaching strategies, it is our tool for developing common and consistent expectations, and it is our vehicle for sharing our coordinated effort at helping students to success.

 

Our expectations are not only common sense, but they may be generalized across different settings.  It is important to us that we use a common language and that our expectations are consistent.  When you are on our campus you will hear adults use language like, “Please walk safely” as opposed to, “Slow Down!  Stop Running!”  When the community is positive, respect is sure to follow.

 

We are in the third year of our implementation.  We are getting better each day and each passing week shows a greater level of understanding.  We are thankful that our collective staff understands this approach.  In addition, these common expectations coupled with our consistent language make it much easier for our parents and other volunteers to participate comfortably at our school.

 

We appreciate that our parents, extended family, and community members understand our approach and support our work.  Developing a Community of Respect takes a great deal of effort and commitment.  However, the payoff is incredible.  Thank you for all that you do to support our work—You Otter see how Respectful, Responsible, and Safe we are becoming…

 

Take care,

Rob Slauson, Principal
