Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS)

PBIS at Lincoln-Erdman

Lincoln-Erdman uses PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) to promote and teach appropriate behaviors and pro-social skills in order to maximize academic success for all students.

  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Safe

Staff members hand PAWS to any student who is displaying appropriate behavior, verbally praising the specific behavior that was observed. Lincoln-Erdman incorporates a variety of PAWS and draws throughout the school calendar.

Each quarter, students have a chance to earn an all-school reward. In the first and fourth quarters, students work together toward a group goal such as a certain number of PAWSitive slips, fewer ODRs in specified areas, etc. In the second and third quarters, students earn their way into the reward by their own individual behaviors.  Some of the celebrations in the past have included : Technology Day, Ice Cream Sundae Day, Elementastic Science Program.

Cool Tool Lessons are behavioral lesson plans that define, teach, model, and practice desirable behaviors. At Lincoln-Erdman, the Cool Tool Lessons are selected based on school-wide data.

All-school assemblies help improve the school climate by reinforcing behavioral expectations and celebrating the positive school community. Assemblies are held monthly. Students are recognized during the assemblies for positive academic, behavioral, and attendance performance.
