North High School PBIS
Stars on Point!
What is Stars on Point?
-Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a systematic approach for establishing the social culture and behavior supports needed to achieve both social and academic success for ALL students. PBIS develops school-wide systems that support staff to teach and promote positive behavior in all students. The purpose of PBIS is to create an environment where everyone feels welcome, promote unity, and maximize learning.
Why Stars on Point?
-Research has shown that introducing, modeling, and reinforcing positive social behavior is an important aspect of a student’s educational experience. Teaching behavioral expectations and recognizing students for following them is a much more positive approach than waiting for misbehavior to occur before responding. The purpose of the school-wide PBIS is to establish a climate at which appropriate behavior is the norm.
PBIS is integrated in three-Tiers. All students receive supports at Tier I. If the behavior of some students is not responsive, more support is provided in Tier II or a highly individualized plan in Tier III.
Tier I: Teach expected behavior and acknowledge positive behavior. This includes S.T.A.R.S awards, Bi-monthly school wide lessons on S.T.A.R.S, Recognize Stars caught “on Point”, guest mentor speakers, and social recognition.
Tier II: Small Group Interventions (Social Skills, Grief Group, Coping Skills…)
Tier III: Targeted Intervention (Individualized plan for each student)
As one student stated, “Stars on Point is the chance to make this campus “our house” –Nate Tuck, senior
