PBS stands for POSITIVE BEHAVIOR SUPPORT
* PBS is a proactive approach to shape positive student behavior and to make the school environment a welcoming and safe place for all.
* PBS is team driven . A team is formed and all decisions are made from the PBS team and then relayed to the entire school faculty.
* PBS uses data and information from research. It looks at successful strategies from schools across the country and shows local schools how to replicate that success.
* The entire school staff including principals, teachers, support stafff, cafeteria staff, custodial staff, security and home-school coordinator can reward the students for their good behavior. Students at Longfellow can earn "Hawkeyes" that can be collected and turned in for prizes.
