  • Introduce Selves Kate Hudkins: Woodlawn for 1 year English Department: English 10 & Accelerated English Shira Wetzler Woodlawn for 1 year English Department: English 9 & Language!
  • What affects our decisions in how to implement school-wide PBIS. Our community Our campus 1 building with lots of easily accessible entries and exits which students use regularly Open campus which allows students to leave and return to campus easily (as well as it allows for non-students to access the building regularly) Students regularly frequent local businesses, such as 7-11, and other restaurants in the area Our Students Large population of students who live in group homes, are in foster care, single parent homes Large population of students who receive free or reduced lunch. Majority of population can be classified as “at-risk” Extremely transient population High incidence of teenage pregnancy, drug & alcohol use, and gang membership Large percentage of students with IEPs and 504 plans Attention-seeking Unless we continue to move forward, Woodlawn will continue to be acknowledged widely as the school where…. When I say I work there I receive the “You work WHERE?” look, followed up with the “You poor thing, you couldn’t have found a nicer, or safer school?” Students do not have school spirit, but neither do many of the faculty members What we are primarily known for: Frequent fights on campus between students Not meeting AYP Attendance Low test scores Restructuring Over 50 new teachers Low teacher retention Lack of respect from students What we have the ability to be known for: Robotics Team Bowling Team and other sports teams Dance Music Dept. Our Alumni Connections Why PBIS can help us get there.
  • Why this is so important to us in our Environment at Woodlawn. Prevention is Key to eliminating negative behaviors.
  • Under the Alternative Governance plan, we have several “Action Teams” comprised of administrators, faculty, and staff. The action team that will be working with PBIS is our Safe & Orderly Action Team, which has 5 subcommittees that will work in tandem with each other to maintain a safe and orderly school.
  • We all know that in order for PBIS to work, we need faculty, parents, and students to buy into the program, but how can this be achieved?  PBIS Peer Reviews Create a PBIS committee of teachers who are willing to go into other teachers’ classrooms to observe the use of PBIS and provide support and advice as needed.  Teachers who are using PBIS correctly should be rewarded Certificates can be given during Faculty Meetings Learning How gift certificates Gift Cards to restaurants, movie theaters, etc Duty Day Pass -- One day pass for exemption from a duty Discounts at games (entrance and/or concessions) Free items from school store PBIS T-shirts  Letters to Parents Parents should be informed about PBIS  What it is  How it is implemented  Why it is implemented When a student is doing well, teachers should send home a congratulatory letter  Behavioral Expectations should be posted EVERYWHERE  Students Letters home to parents when a student is doing well and meeting all expectations Gift Cards Half-off entry at school games Permission to participate in activities  Fun assemblies  Concerts  Homecoming activities  Intramurals  Bowling night Quarterly ice cream socials for students with perfect attendance Quarterly pizza parties for students on the honor roll Permission to go to the Rec Room during lunch (TV, Games, Arcade Games, Cards, Air Hockey, Vending Machine)  All teachers must sign-off on a form that the student deserves to go to the Rec Room; a student may lose or gain the privilege at any time
  • Participation: Active learners are involved, Be there-be prepared Respect: Take care of Self, Others, Environment Integrity: Be honest, Be true to yourself and others, Take responsibility for your actions and words Dedication: Be a team player, Demonstrate commitment, Maintain perseverance Excellence: Do your personal best, Challenge yourself to go above and beyond, Support the best in all
  • Limo: (with appropriate number of coupons...only one prize would be available, through a drawing) Homework Pass ((to be given by individual teachers as an incentive.... we need to get these together before the year starts) Permission to attend events (concerts, special Homecoming events, etc)
