FHS Whole School Rewards Initiative

The Goal:

For our school-wide PBIS initiative, we have developed a banking system designed to do multiple things.

  • First, it will reinforce the groundwork laid during the first semester, specifically the mottos “Be Respectful. Be Responsible. Be Reward-Worthy.” These concepts have been posted throughout the building and implemented in individual classrooms as a means of improving behaviours and decreasing disciplinary action.
  • Second, it will help students gain a better appreciation of the banking / commerce systems they will be expected to navigate as graduates, making them college and career ready.
  • Third, it will increase understanding of basic mathematical practice, improving scores on the General Summative Assessment in the spring

Goals and Mission

The mission of PBIS is to support school teams via training and technical assistnance as they take a proactive systems approach for creating and maintaining a safe and positive school environment.

The goal of PBIS is to makes schools effective and efficient and provide equitable learning environments for all students. Decreasing aggressive conduct and bullying can occur through improving culture and climate, building relationships with students and staff, changing academic outcomes and increasing pro-social behaviors.

Framework at a Glance

PBIS is alligned with Policy 4373 Expected Behavior in Safe and Supportive Schools, Policy 2322 Standards for High Quality Schools 3.1 WVDE Strategic Plan Goal 2:Improve Safe and Supportive School Environments which meet the physical, social, emotional and academic needs of every child.

PBIS is not a curriculum but a framework for school administrators to organize their discIpline procedures and policies.


School administrators and faculty should view the School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports: The Why and How

Tier I: Universal Interventions

Tier I of the PBIS model, universal or primary approaches that are preventative in nature are put into place (Sugai & Homer, 2002). These approaches are for all students, staff, and settings and include the development of school-wide expectations, a behavioral matrix, and reinforcement systems to reward desired social behavior. Outcomes, systems, data, and practices are continually evaluated when providing universal supports (Center on Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support).

Academy Day 1 PowerPoint (updated 9/6/2016) includes an overview of multi-tiered system of support, West Virginia data, description of the Tiered Fidelity Inventory, the importance of teaming and creating school wide behavior expectations.

Academy Day 2 PowerPoint includes information about effective discipline procedures (definitions, responses and forms), using your data, the importance of teaching behavior, and how to create your acknowledgement and feedback system.

Academy Day 3 PowerPoint includes ideas for gaining buy-in from faculty, students and families, how to create an implementation schedule, guidance on what to do after the training and additional resources.
