WHAT IS PBIS ?
PBIS is a research based, systematic approach to teaching expected behaviors. It includes a three level system to address behavior needs and expectations school-wide, in classrooms and for students with at-risk behaviors. Behaviors are explicitly taught and reinforced through positive behavior supports.
WHAT IS L.E.A.D. ?.
LEAD is the acronym at Longfellow to outline the following expectations:
L-Lead Using the 7 Habits
E-Everyone is Respectful
A-Always Safe & Responsible
D-Determined to Persevere
At Longfellow Elementary, we utilize a Behavior Matrix that was created and is implemented by all school personnel. It includes the expected behaviors in all school settings (for example, playground, library, classroom, etc). The behavior matrix is reviewed and revisited on a consistent basis. Each month, all classrooms are given a Matrix Lesson, which is a specially designed lesson plan in order to explicitly teach a desired behavior in a selected location.At Longfellow, we are promoting, “Lynx LEAD” to help our students make thoughtful decisions regarding the choices they make at school, at home and in the community.
