PBIS is the acronym for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports which is our proactive approach to prevent inappropriate behavior through teaching and reinforcing appropriate behaviors. At VMS students are expected to follow our Pride Matrix and are awarded PRIDE tickets when they are observed being Ready, Responsible, or Respectful.
These tickets can be turned in for various incentives from their teachers or from school wide incentives:
During the 2015/16 school year 55,364 tickets were redeemed! This number has increased from 522 during the 2012/13 school year when the PBIS program was first implemented. We have also seen a significant decrease in the number of disciplinary referrals.
