Wood Road Elementary School has full implementation of a school-wide behavior system called PBIS. This stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. At the beginning of each school year, the students are explicitly taught the school-wide behavioral expectations. These lessons highlighted specific behavioral expectations in each are of the school including: instructional areas, hallways, cafeteria, recess, assemblies, bathrooms, and buses.
Wood Road's PBIS Plan has 3 basic expectations:
Students are acknowledged frequently for following these behavioral expectations throughout the school. Students following the “Three B’s” will be acknowledged with Scottie Bucks, which will be awarded by all staff. These will accumulate and may be turned in for various activities, prizes from a prize box and/or social reinforcers. Special events called Scottie Days will be held three times throughout the school year as a celebration for students who make good choices and follow the “Three B’s.” These events are for students who have not received a referral.
