Positive Behavior Intervention Support
Pioneer is a Positive Behavior Intervention Support School. This means that throughout the school we use a broad range of systemic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes while preventing problem behaviors with all students. In other words, we teach students expected behaviors and reinforce those behaviors in a positive way.
The purpose of the Colorado School-wide Positive Behavior Intervention Support Initiative is to establish and maintain safe and effective school environments that maximize the academic achievement and behavioral competence of all learners in Colorado.
At Pioneer, students receive blue Respect Tickets for displaying one of the 3 R's, (Respect Self, Respect Others, Respect the Environment). They use 20 of these tickets to complete a Punch Card. Students bring full punch cards to the prize cart weekly to trade them in for rewards such as books, toys, or having lunch with the principals. Our matrix attached below explains the behaviors that show respect for self, others, and the environment.
