Posters Help Students Remember PBS

-A A +A

Program: Phrase allows schools and districts to build multi-leveled systems

By Bernadette Lauritzen

Los Alamos Public School kicks off 2012 with some new posters to help students remember the district-wide policy called PBS.
PBS or Positive Behavior Support, has translated to students as be safe, be responsible, be respectful.
The simple phrase allows schools and districts to build multi-leveled systems to handle both academic and behavior supports to assist students throughout their academic journey.
The efforts began in 2010 with a collaboration between the Los Alamos Public Schools and the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board, to offer training and resources to LAPS staff.
The LAPS team worked to develop a timeline and strategies, while maintaining consistency in PBS language, district-wide.
To assist with that effort, the duo of Megan Lee and Kathy Weinman held a poster contest at the end of 2011 to build on student knowledge and empower the student to become the teacher.
More than 50 students throughout the district entered the PBS poster contest, which purported the tenets to LAPS students, be respectful be responsible and be safe.
