STAR PRIDE - a Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Program
Individual Acknowledgement--STAR Catchers:
Used to acknowledge safe, kind, and responsible behavior
Can be given by any staff member to any student.
Star catchers are brought to the office during the week
Star Catchers are randomly drawn on Fridays
Non-tangible experiences for students are offered (ie. visit a friend, principal lunch, visit a former teacher, game day with office staff, etc)
When our Star Catchers fill the display case, a school-wide celebration occurs
Stop and Thinks:
Stop and Thinks are utilized for staff to address behavior concerns. These are utilized by staff to allow for the student to reflect on their behavior and how it affects the class or school environment. This also serves as an opportunity for the staff member to re-teach, practice, model, and/or practice the positive, expected behavior with the student.
Office Discipline Referrals:
Office Discipline Referrals (ODRs) are given to students who need more time to refocus and discuss behavior choices with an office member. The student will have the positive, expected behavior explained, reviewed. Parents may be notified when an ODR occurs. The STAR Pride Program was developed to enable teachers to teach and students to maximize learning time.
