SAIL: PBIS Initiative
Our school participates in an important district initiative. It is called Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
PBIS focuses on improving a school’s ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students. It includes school-wide procedures and processes intended for all students and staff in all settings. It is an approach to creating a safe and productive learning environment where teachers can teach and all students can learn.
We have adopted a unified set of classroom rules similar to the YCSD Code of Conduct. These rules define our expectations for behavior in our school. You will see these rules posted throughout the school and your child will be learning them during his or her first days at school. Our unified classroom rules, found in every classroom and non-classroom setting in the school, are as follows:
