PBIS Hits the Streets!
The Ball-Chatham School District, through its many volunteers, is working with area businesses to bring PBIS into the community.á PBIS, (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) is a school-wide system that strives to improve consistency in expected behaviors, resulting in students being ready and prepared to learn. All of our district schools, kindergarten through high school, have adopted three core behavior expectations; BE RESPECTFUL, BE RESPONSIBLE, AND BE SAFE. By teaching these expectations, students of the Ball-Chatham School District will have the knowledge and skills necessary to become respectful, responsible and safe community members. Our goal is to have community-wide support of our behavior expectations: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe.á
