Ron Russell uses Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to ensure our behavioral expectations are taught and reinforced in all common areas of the school (hallways, commons, arrival, dismissal, etc…)  You’ve probably seen our PBIS posters that highlight our expectations all around our school.  We have a team of administrators, teachers, and classified staff that meet twice monthly to review discipline data, problem-solve ways to continue to strengthen positive behavior school-wide, and plan school-wide rewards.  At Ron Russell, we focus on four behavioral expectations that are positvely stated and easy to remember.  Respectful, Responsible, Making Good Choices, and Safe.  RRMS…or Ron Russell Middle School!

We want students to be in class learning and not down in the office.  Below is our “PBIS Triangle” that visually shows us the students earning discipline referrals.  The PBIS goal is to have our “Green Zone” be 80% or higher.  These are students who receive 0 or 1 discipline referral for the year.  We ended the 16-17 school year at 86.8%!  Our “Yellow Zone” ended with 9.1% students who received 2-5 referrals and PBIS says it should be lower than 15%.  Finally, our “Red Zone” ended with 4.2% of our students who received 6 or more discipline referrals.  PBIS says this should be 5% or less.  We are proud of these numbers and are always looking for ways to get better and work with students so they know our expectations, choose to follow them, and stay in class learning!

Our May PBIS Assembly and May Tracker Party were a huge success.  At our Tracker Party, we had a VIP section set up for students who earned the right to attend every Tracker Party this year and/or earned Wolf Pride Cards each quarter.  Student could use their phones, play in a bounce house, and enjoy a healthy snack in our VIP section!  We are already excited to continue to make PBIS a huge part of our school culture at Ron Russell for the 17-18 school year.
