POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION AND SUPPORT (PBIS)
Bayless Junior High School prides itself on the respectful and productive behavior of students and staff. As a staff, we feel the need to continue working toward this goal by helping children learn necessary skills and behaviors for school success. To accomplish this, we implemented a school-wide program called the Positive Behavior System (PBS). These programs use a proactive educational approach, instructional strategies, and logical consequences.
During the first two weeks of school, our teachers spend time discussing school and classroom procedures. We believe that taking this valuable time to allow all students to obtain the knowledge of our expectations, rewards, and consequences that each child will have an optimal learning experience for the entire school year. All students are expected to abide by certain standards of behavior in every area of the school, and under the supervision of every adult staff member, not just the classroom teacher. Each staff member has his or her own classroom expectations.
The “Bayless Junior High Way,” is we hope to see every Junior Broncho: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Kind.
THE BAYLESS JUNIOR HIGH TOUCHSTONE
Each morning, every student and staff member recites the following statement in unison to remind each other of the importance of living a respectful, responsible, and kind life:
At Bayless Junior High, we take the high road. We take pride in our school. We use kind words and actions, listen thoughtfully, and stand up for ourselves and others. We show respect and take responsibility for our learning. We are Bayless Junior High!
