Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support (PBIS)

We are pleased to announce the Macomb Jr. High Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support (PBIS) program. PBIS helps staff teach students the types of behaviors we want them to display as opposed to the ones we don’t want them to emulate.

The purpose of this program is to establish clear expectations and to encourage a sense of community in which we all play a positive role in our school’s success and safety. This program utilizes proactive strategies in defining and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create a positive school environment. The PBIS program reinforces ongoing Character Education.

The PBIS team has developed school wide expectations and a system of positive reinforcement to be implemented throughout the school including the classrooms, locker, cafeteria, bathrooms, gym, locker room, hallways, office, and the library. MJH has created the acronym, SOAR, which stands for:

S –Safe O –Organized A –Academic R –Respectful

A system of acknowledgements will help motivate students to do their best. We will celebrate positive behavior and reinforce that MJH students SOAR within our school community. We believe that by helping students engage in appropriate behavior, we will form a school community where all students have the opportunity to grow and succeed. Your support is very much appreciated.
