The mission of the Springfield Elementary School-Wide Positive Behavior Support program is to teach and model expected school behavior in an effort to improve student achievement and promote a safe and positive climate where students are responsible, respectful, and kin

What does the School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support program (SWPBIS) look like at Springfield Elementary?

  • Expectations are displayed throughout the school
  • Student, staff, and parents are taught the expectations throughout the school year.
  • Students and staff are able to state the expectations
  • Staff members model positive behavior expectations for students
  • Students are reinforced for displaying appropriate behavior in school 

How Can Parents Help with Positive Behavior Support?

  • Talk to your child about their school day and how they were responsible, respectful, and kind
  • Ask your child about Pawsitive Panther tickets they have received
  • Keep communication between you and your child’s teacher active throughout the school year
  • Focus on the positive choices your child is making

Reinforcement

The principal will give out 5 Pawsitive Panther Awards to be handed out by random staff members every day.  Staff members will acknowledge students who are following the school expectations by giving them a Pawsitive Panther Award.  The student will take their Pawsitive Panther Award to the office during lunch/recess. The student signs the celebrity book and picks a numbered popsicle stick.  The student and teacher name is written on a paw print and they attach it to the Pawsitive Panthers Board in the numbered spot that correlates with the numbered popsicle stick chosen.  Once 10 boxes are filled in a row, diagonally, across, or down, those 10 students receive the mystery prize for that week.  One teacher is pulled from the 10 Paws that were posted and receives a reward from the Teacher Reward Menu. 

Consequences are still given for inappropriate behavior. These may include:

  • School Discipline Report completed
  • Restorative Conference with the student
  • Warning Issued
  • Parent contacted
  • Time in office
  • Lunch with teacher or in office
  • Student/Teacher Conference
  • Loss of privilege
  • Detention and/or suspension in accordance with district student conduct policy
