Schools that implement school-wide systems of positive behavior support focus on taking a team-based system approach and teaching appropriate behavior to all students in the school. Schools that have been successful in building school-wide systems develop procedures to accomplish the following:

  1. Behavioral Expectations are Defined. A small number of clearly defined behavioral expectations are defined in positive, simple, rules. Pinecrest High School’s Patriot Code of Conduct is:

  • Be Respectful

  • Be Responsible

  • Be Ready

  1. Behavioral Expectations are Taught. The behavioral expectations are taught to all students in the building, and are taught in real contexts. Teaching appropriate behavior involves much more than simply telling students what behaviors they should avoid. Specific behavioral examples are:

  • Being respectful means raising your hand when you want to speak or get help.

  • Being respectful means using a person’s name when you talk to him or her.

  • Being responsible means knowing and following classroom and school rules on a daily basis.

  • Being responsible means to be on time.

  • Being ready means to be prepared with assignments and materials.

  • Being ready means to follow and respond appropriately to adult direction.

Behavioral expectations are taught using the same teaching formats applied to other curricula. The general rule is presented, the rationale for the rule is discussed, positive examples (“right way”) are described and rehearsed, and negative examples (“wrong way”) are described and modeled. Students are given an opportunity to practice the “right way” until they demonstrate fluent performance
