In 2010, South Lake began implementing a new behavioral support system known as Positive Behavior Intervention and Support. Rather than focusing entirely on disciplining students who displayed negative behaviors, PBIS focuses on celebrating the kids who do the right thing. We have three expectations that are displayed prominently around the school:
· Take care of yourself.
· Take care of each other.
· Take care of our school.
By focusing on the positive, PBIS allows us to also target and provide extra support to students who struggle with reaching our expectations. Our goal is to help our students achieve, not just academically, but socially and emotionally as well.
