Principal's Message

From the Principal

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

We have been working on PBIS at Edison for three years now.  This approach to student success replaces the old paradigm of catching students making bad decisions and doing bad things resulting in punishment to a system where appropriate expectations are taught and modeled, there are reminders placed in classrooms and throughout the school, and the entire community understands that the hard work that we do to establish and maintain high standards allows us to become a safe school and a community of respect.

 

Our school takes advantage of our mascot, The Otter to teach and reinforce our simple school rules.  This is what it looks like:

 

You Otter Be…

Safe

Respectful

Responsible

When we manage our time so that we can teach and reinforce these clear expectations, students become very comfortable knowing and understanding how these three simple rules can guide their decisions.  We have divided our school into important focus points that include the classrooms, the bathrooms, the eating areas (the courtyard and MPR, transition times, the office, assemblies, and recess areas.  In addition, we have partnered with our parents to teach before and after school expectations in conjunction with our Go Green program and the Walk, Rock and Roll safe and healthy transportation to school.

 

This approach to student success compels us to do what is necessary to ensure student success and school safety.  When students make poor choices we reteach the expectations, we model to the student what the expectations are, and we work to catch students making good decisions.  Occasionally, a student needs a consequence in order to make positive decisions in the future so we often call parents, have parent conferences, or assign an appropriate consequence aimed at creating future success for the student. 

We have begun to see the fruits of our work as office behavior referrals have declined and our community is becoming one of respect.  All of this work is aimed to assist everyone in our learning community to reach their potential.  It is our hope that you will reinforce this work at home!  We appreciate your partnership and your support.

 

Take care,

Rob Slauson, Principal
