Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture and needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional and academic success. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary (school-wide), secondary (classroom), and tertiary (individual) systems of support that improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, work, recreation) for all youth by making targeted misbehavior less effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional. At SCC, PBIS looks different at each building.

At the elementary level, PBIS uses a different character trait each month to focus and grow student behavior. Students who exemplify that trait are chosen as students of the month, with a special assembly to recognize them held each month. Reteaching opportunities are held for students who struggle to understand expectations.
The middle school is just beginning their PBIS journey. We will attempt to grow what is being done at the elementary level into expectations that fit with the crazy middle school years.
The high school is where the PBIS system comes to an end. Our students are fully formed with unique personalities, though we hope to showcase the best of our students to inspire others to greatness.
