Euclid schools promote positive behavior through PBIS
Teachers and principals will once again be on the lookout for good behavior as part of PBIS.
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports is an evidence-based program that stresses teaching positive and appropriate behavior. The program focuses on improving school climate, which in turn can have a positive impact on attendance rates, academic achievement and graduation rates.
Each school decides on three to five key behaviors that they want to stress and make sure that students know what those key behaviors are. Teachers may award points that students can redeem for rewards and privileges when they see the students doing what’s expected of them.
Each of Euclid City Schools’ buildings received recognition at the annual Ohio PBIS Showcase in 2018. Arbor, Bluestone and Chardon Hills elementary schools earned the silver award while Central Middle School, Euclid High School, Shoreview Elementary School and the Euclid Early Learning Center won bronze awards.
