An important part of PBIS is data collection. The PBIS team collects data on minor and major behavior referrals, attendance and behavior interventions. This data is used to drive re-teaching of behavior in specific areas of the school. For example, if the behavior team notices increased tardies there may be re-teaching of positive hallway behavior and increased rewarding of on-time students.
We are happy to share that we have begun our new universal Bully Prevention program “Stop-Walk-Talk”. As you know Patrick Marsh has always taken bullying and bully prevention seriously. Over the years we have used various curriculums to teach bully prevention and assertiveness. We were looking for a curriculum that used common language that all staff and students could use and listen for; “Stop-Walk-Talk” fits for us. All staff were trained the beginning of April and we are teaching all students this week during homeroom. Ask your child about the candle activity and have them explain Stop-Walk-Talk to you. For your convenience there is also a link to this information below.
