How might we?:

How might we utilize Positive Based Intervention Strategies to positively impact our relationships with students?

Describe the prototype(s) your school will focus on. Get creative. Be sure to describe the various approaches staff will take, what you will keep your eye on and how staff plan to document their results.

What will you try?

  • Administration will be intentionally visible in the hallways, parking lots, school events, and trouble areas in the building.
  • Administration will target busy times of the day, including class breaks, lunch, and before/after school.
  • During this visibility, administration will focus on conversing with students, staff, and parents in the pursuit of building relationships.
  • As part of the prototype, there is a PBIS learning team at the school focused on bringing effective practices to all staff.

What will you keep your eye on; what will occur that will give you insight? 

  • Positive interactions with students, staff, and parents in our supervision routines. Changing tones of the conversation through active supervision and relationship building.
  • Are we able to honour our current schedule of being visible at busy times and not getting stuck behind our desks or in meetings.
  • Do we develop a way to document or measure the conversations we are having or do we just rely on the anecdotal feedback at the conclusion of the school year.

How will you document your results?

  • RVS Satisfaction survey on feedback from parents, staff, and students on a safe and caring, welcoming environment at school.
  • Deliverable from our PBIS learning team on what they found through their own questions and learning throughout the school year.
  • Suspension analysis - looking at reasons why our students get suspended and comparing it to 2018.19 data (defiance for example).
