The Webster Way PBIS - Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports
The Oshkosh Area School District has adopted the PBIS program throughout the District over the past couple of years. PBIS emphasizes that classroom management and preventive school discipline must be integrated and working together with effective academic instruction in a positive and safe school climate to maximize success for all students. What this means for your kids is that we emphasize positive acknowledgements for positive, expected behavior--”Norms”. Students who are following the norms may earn tickets that they can enter into drawings for a chance to participate in activities or prizes. These drawings are held monthly. In addition, students may choose to save their tickets to use to purchase special prizes on the “Cart of Awesomeness” or activities in their classroom
