Positive Behavior Support

Long Neck Elementary PBS

“PBS is a broad range of systemic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning results while preventing problem behavior” (Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support, 2001). 

The goal of PBS is to maximize appropriate behaviors by teaching students how to manage themselves appropriately.  A core committee of staff members at Long Neck Elementary developed four principles that students are expected to follow along with a universal color system.  In addition to the universal color system our students may receive "star bucks" as incentives for following the school-wide rules.
