School-Wide Discipline Program
Discipline/Classroom Management/Positive Behavior Intervention Support (P.B.I.S)
Positive behavior intervention support is a collaborative (team-based) educational, proactive, and functional process for developing effective strategies to teach and reinforce appropriate behavior. Lee County Pre-K does not assume that students know how to behave appropriately in all situations when at school; therefore, we must teach our students how to behave at school to ensure that make good choices. We will teach the students our three expectations and all of the rules will be linked to our expectations. All of our Pre-K will implement and follow the same rules to help students develop a common vocabulary. Students will be rewarded for good behavior with a “Pom-Pom” that will be placed in a container in their classroom. When the classroom fills the container they will vote on a class reward.
We concentrate on positive behavior but if a need for a consequence arises it may include but is not limited to: loss of privileges, phone call, or email to parents, time out, conference with principal, parent conference, or out of school suspension. If behavior is causing harm to other students then student may be removed from the Program. Parents will receive a handout at Open House explaining the discipline referral process.
A PBIS student of the month will be selected at the end of each month. They will be chosen based on our Pre-K Expectations. They will receive a certificate, picture in the newspaper, and a special treat from the front office. Parents will be invited to come and celebrate with their student.
We also have a “Student Spotlight” of the week. Every student will get a chance to participate. Teachers will inform parents on Friday when their child will be the spotlight for the upcoming week.
