Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports

We are pleased to announce the Cecil H. Parker Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support (PBIS) program. PBIS will provide us with a positive behavioral system in place for the 2022-2023 school year. It will help staff recognize scholars for positive behavior and good citizenship.

Our purpose is to establish clear expectations and encourage a sense of community in which we all play a positive role in our school’s success and safety. The PBIS team has developed school-wide expectations and a system of positive rewards and reinforcements to be used throughout the school, as well as on the school bus. Cecil H. Parker School has created an acronym, P.A.W.S., which stands for: P-Practice Respect, A-Act Responsibly, W-Work Together, S-Stay Safe.

We believe that by helping scholars engage in positive behavior, we will form a school community where all scholars can grow and be successful. We recently had our PBIS “kick-off” pep rally, and the scholars were so excited about the PBIS program. On the back of this letter, we included the school’s PBIS PAWS Matrix you will know the behavior expectations that are expected in the school. We also attached the PBIS Home Matrix that indicates some appropriate behaviors at home. You may use this home matrix as a guide for home expectations.

Together with your support, we look forward to the journey ahead!
