PBIS "Postitive Behavior Interventions Supports"

Welcome to the start of a new school year at deLacey!  Here at deLacey, we have created a positive school culture and environment by following our universal plan to increase positive student behaviors through PBIS, Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports.  The goal of PBIS is to create a positive school culture and environment by reducing the incidents of problem behavior and providing maximum learning time for students. 

 The universal plan provides students, staff, parents and building visitors with clear behavioral expectations.  The expectations are taught to all students through creative means such as video modeling and role play.  Students practice these skills throughout their school day and are reinforced and recognized for exhibiting expected behavior.

 Our PBIS system has four components:

 1. Expectations

The expectations that we expect everyone in our deLacey community to follow are:


 It is our goal to make these expectations clear and easy for students to understand by defining what behaviors are included in our expectations through the use of pictures and direct teaching.  Posters defining expected behaviors are displayed throughout the building and playground. 

 2. Cool Tools (lesson plans)

            One of the most important components of the PBIS system is that behavioral skills and expectations are taught directly to students.  The lessons teach all students what is expected of them and how they are to behave.  Cool Tools are taught throughout the school year to all students. 

 3. Splash Tickets

            Another part of our PBIS system is the use of consistent positive reinforcement of appropriate behavior.  Students earn Splash tickets by following deLacey’s expectations in all areas of the school from all staff members. Classrooms will collect Splash tickets from students and celebrate successes as a class and also as a building. 

 4. Behavior Concern Data Sheets

Behavior concern sheets will be completed by staff members when a significant problem behavior occurs.  This data will be used to identify additional areas of need for students.

 Following a universal PBIS plan creates a social culture in our building that encourages positive behaviors and interactions, leading to a safe environment where students achieve academically and build positive relationships with peers and adults.  If you have any questions, please feel free to speak with your child’s teacher or our PBIS building coaches, Amy Brittain and Pamela Mahoney. 


We are looking forward to a great year!
