PBIS :“Continuing our Positive Behavior Program at Home”

PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) is a system of supports that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and reinforcing appropriate student behaviors in order to create and nurture a safe, positive school environment.

The three expectations taught on our campus are:

  • Be Safe
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Respectful

We teach our students exactly what behaviors look like in our classrooms and our common areas of the school (i.e. Lunch tables, hallways, playground, bathrooms, etc.).

At Barton School, we focus our attention on catching students who are demonstrating positive behaviors aligned with our expectations. We also provide re-directions and lessons to students who need more support in learning the expectations.

We encourage you to think of what our expectations of Safety, Respect, and Responsibility look like in your home.

The Importance of School Attendance

Attendance Facts:

  • A student who is absent 3 or more days or misses 30 minutes or more of school 3 or more times without a valid excuse is classified as truant. (Ref. E.C. 48260)
  • A student is chronically absent if she or he is absent 10% or more of the school days enrolled.

Research on Attendance Shows:

  • Students with regular attendance have higher achievement.
  • Students who are on time and come to school regularly have better relationships with their peers and teachers.
  • Students who are habitually late to school develop habits that may last a lifetime. The #1 reason people are fired from their jobs is because they are late to work!
  • Students who dropout of school usually had attendance problems during their elementary or middle school years.
  • Only 17% of kids chronically absent in Kindergarten and first grade can read at grade level by third grade.
