P.B.I.S. General Overview

Proactive Approach to School-wide Discipline
Oglesby Public School System uses a school-wide system of positive behavior supports (PBIS) as a way to teach appropriate behaviors to all our students in the school. Our schools have developed successfully a program to accomplish the following:

1. Behavioral Expectations: Clearly defined behavioral expectations.

  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Safe

2. Behavioral Expectations are taught to the whole school.

  • Respectful - means to treat the way you would like to be treated
  • Responsible - means following rules and being accountable
  • Safe - means ensuring safety for self and others

3. Acknowledgements are given school-side.

All of the school is involved in a school-wide incentive based acknowledgment program. Once appropriate behaviors are defined and taught, they need to be acknowledged. Therefore, we have created Bulldog Bucks that are given out school-wide that can be redeemed at the school incentives store on a monthly basis. In addition, positive encouragement and reinforcements are consistently provided to promote good behaviors.
