Along with focusing on academic excellence, Village Elementary School strives to achieve in the Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) of each child. We, alongside families and the community, accomplish this by implementing and modeling Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS). PBIS includes proactive strategies for defining, teaching and supporting appropriate behavioral management of all students. These strategies are implemented in classrooms, hallways, restrooms, cafeterias and buses.
Focusing on the positive behaviors and rewarding the students when they are shown is a much more successful way to maintain a classroom climate in comparison to responding to misbehavior through punishment.
At Village, we use multiple PBIS strategies to model and sustain attitudes and behaviors that allow for all students to succeed in becoming caring and respectful citizens in and outside of school.
