PBIS: Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports
At Sorensen Science Academy, we utilize a Behavior Matrix that was created and is implemented by all school personnel. It includes the expected behaviors in all school settings (for example, playground, library, classroom, etc). The behavior matrix is reviewed and revisited on a consistent basis. Each month, all classrooms are given a Matrix Lesson, which is a specially designed lesson plan in order to explicitly teach a desired behavior in a selected location. At Sorensen, we are promoting, "R.O.C.K.S.” to help our students make thoughtful decisions regarding the choices they make at school, at home, and in the community.
WHAT CAN PARENTS DO TO SUPPORT PBIS and ROCKS ?
*Ask your child or children about their day
*Talk about making good choices and showing their “ROCKS” at home and at school
*Read books/articles that discuss behavior or have lessons that teach them about character building
*Communicate often with your child’s teacher on behavior. Ask how you can help and share what works at home
*Look out for newsletters regarding PBIS information
*Read books to your children that teach about character or behavior
WHEN STUDENTS NEED REDIRECTION:
When students do not follow the rules, we provide them with opportunities to reflect on their choices and relearn the matrix behaviors.
