PBIS in LCPS
"Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based approach for creating a common vision of behavioral expectations through consistent language and practices among staff and students. PBIS is a framework of tiered supports to address the needs of ALL the members of the school community.
The Loudoun County Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Coordination team, through training and technical assistance, supports schools and alternative placement settings in creating and sustaining comprehensive systems which promote safe, equitable and supportive learning environments across behavior, academic, and social-emotional domains for all of Loudoun County school students.
Our goal is to ensure that all schools have the necessary technical assistance, collaborative opportunities, and evaluative tools needed to implement PBIS with fidelity in non-classroom, and classroom areas; to address the targeted needs of individual students, while providing support to teachers, students, and families."
PBIS at HPMS
PBIS is an evidence-based approach for creating a common vision of behavioral expectations through consistent language and practices among staff and students. Harper Park’s school- wide community expectations are Be There; Be Ready; Be Kind. We reinforce expected behaviors with Hurricane Eye Tickets and specific verbal praise. Students are taught expected behaviors through staff modeling, and our advisory lessons. Students can earn Hurricane Eye tickets to purchase items listed from our student driven PBIS Incentive Menu.
