PBIS Student Roll Out 2017-2018
Jane E. Tuitt Primary School rolled out PBIS to their students on December 8, 2017, for the first time this school year! Students were reminded of the Positive Behavior Sticker Program and of their expected behaviors. Students were led by cheerleaders as they chanted and sang about the 3 Be’s at JET: Be Responsible, Be Respectful and Be Safe!
The positive behavior school store has been stocked and is open for business. Students collect stickers for demonstrating positive behaviors and spend them on rewards. Evidence shows that when positive behaviors are rewarded consistently and meaningfully, those behaviors are more likely to occur more often. Rewards include positive, behavior specific praise, small toys and non-tangibles (homework pass, line leader pass etc.).
The PBIS team student advisors were also chosen and rewarded at the roll out! These two students will attend PBIS meetings and provide input from the student perspective. They were chosen based on their continued positive behaviors and the way they represent the 3 Be’s!
PBIS Parent Orientation 2017
On November 10, 2017 Jane E. Tuitt rolled out PBIS to parents at the parent orientation! Parents were able to walk around the school campus, meet teachers, observe classrooms and ask question. A PBIS booth was set up to inform parents about positive behavioral interventions and supports. Informational pamphlets were handed out in English and Spanish to provide follow up information on how PBIS can be used at home!

PBIS Student Roll Out 2016-2017
On February 6, 2017, Jane E. Tuitt Primary School (JET) rolled out PBIS to their students! Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an adaptable framework to address behavioral challenges and improve social skills, school climate and school culture. The PBIS team at JET, along with administration and staff, have been working hard to implement PBIS this year. The recent roll out celebration included skits, PBIS chants, cheers, a parade, a dance party in the yard and a sneak peek of the new school store. It was all topped off with take home treats and a take home message, “Be Responsible, Be Respectful and Be Safe!”
Over the next several days teachers will work with students on learning the new behavioral expectation matrix and how the 3 B’s are relevant all over school. JET will follow up with monthly PBIS celebrations, student and teacher awards for positive behavior, secondary behavioral supports and enhanced data collection systems. Students and staff will benefit from evidence-based practices that support positive behaviors and learning initiatives.
Furthermore, students will begin earning Positive Behavior Stickers for using the 3 B’s; stickers will be handed out for positive behaviors and placed on student cards. Stickers will be redeemed for prizes at the school store as a way to reward appropriate and expected behaviors.
JET is teaching positive social skills and improving school climate through constructive, encouraging and progressive teaching methods incorporated with PBIS. Teachers, staff and students are instructed to focus on the positive, on what is going well and on expected behaviors, rather than on problem behaviors. They are shifting away from problem focused environments and moving towards problem solving and setting students up for success through teaching expectations and supporting behavioral growth.
Over the next several months, as the PBIS language and methods spread across the school, JETs will “soar to excellence”!
