Nicolas Junior High is utilizing PBIS Rewards to support positive behaviors on our campus!
That sounds great, but what is PBIS?
PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports. It seeks to reduce or eliminate poor behavior schoolwide through the encouragement of positive behaviors. PBIS decreases office discipline referrals, increases instructional time, and improves student achievement. This intentional focus on positive reinforcement is creating and maintaining a positive school climate for the students and teachers.
At Nicolas our PBIS slogan is CODE - caring, open-minded, determined and engaged!
Now, how does PBIS Rewards help with that?
PBIS Rewards is a digital platform that allows our staff members to recognize any student, anywhere for meeting behavior expectations. These behavior expectations are our CODE - caring, open minded, determined, engaged. So, when your child displays the behavior that is expected, they are recognized for it. CODE coins can be earned through that recognition may be used to purchase items from the Nicolas CODE store open on Fridays at lunch.
How does that benefit you, the parent?
As a parent, you can monitor your child’s progress and stay engaged with the PBIS Rewards Parent App! Download it for free on Google Play, the App Store, or Amazon Apps. Adding your child is simple. You’ll receive an email or letter with a QR code from your school. Open the PBIS Rewards Parent App and scan this QR code. If you have multiple children using PBIS Rewards at their school, you will be able to add each one separately.
Once your child is added to your PBIS Rewards Parent App, you will be able to see how many CODE coins they have earned, which teacher rewarded them, and how they’re spending their CODE coins.
