Minot Consolidated School
POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION & SUPPORTS (PBIS)
PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. Students are taught lessons on the expectations and procedures for all of the school-wide areas. Minot Consolidated School has a school-wide acknowledgement system… the Cowboy Coupon! Students earn Cowboy Coupons by showing they are safe, respectful, and responsible in the common areas within the school. Students earn a school-wide reward for reaching goals of collecting a specific amount of coupons. If you ask students, they should be able to tell you our school-wide rules are to be safe, respectful, and responsible!
Minot Consolidated School has a PBIS team that is made up of classroom teachers, an education technician, school counselor, administrator, and a parent representative. In addition to planning the implementation of PBIS, the PBIS Team looks at data collected from the Office Discipline Referral Forms (ODRs) to look for patterns in time of day, location, or behavior that is being reported in order to identify where improvements need to be made and more supports for students need to be provided.
Minot Consolidated School is built on a set of common values; be safe, be respectful, and be responsible. The implementation of Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS) will create and sustain a positive learning environment where all students can succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. Using the PBIS approach, we will proactively teach, model, and acknowledge behaviors that will support a positive school culture.
