PBIS Program Overview

Ask your child how we start each day at Pleasant Valley!
Students in every classroom begin their day standing and reciting
Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag;
then they recite the PV pledge:

I will be respectful,

I will be responsible,

and I am ready to learn!

At Pleasant Valley School we continue to be a PBIS school!
Our goal is to create a school-wide environment that is positive, preventative, predictable and effective for the behavior of all children. Students will be taught positive behaviors, routines, and cues that will be encouraged by all faculty and staff in all school environments. Our goal is to:


Create a school-wide culture of positive behaviors

Reduce behavior disruptions

Create appropriate environments to educate all students

The PV Teaching Matrix is posted in every classroom and is used to teach expected positive learning behaviors. All students are encouraged to

“Catch a Respectful, Responsible, or Ready-to-Learn Wave!"



Student Recognition

The Pleasant Valley staff believes in frequent recognition of students who are demonstrating positive behaviors throughout the day in all school settings.  We’re always looking for opportunities to acknowledge our students with Catch a Wave Slips that our students can use in the school store!

Our Focus is Teaching!

At PV, our focus is on teaching students how to be successful and to behave responsibly.  PBIS is based on the belief that social behavior is learned, therefore it can be taught.  All of PV’s students are taught socially acceptable ways of behaving just as one would teach any academic subject.

At PV, we track office referrals through a web-based data collection program called SWIS School-wide Information System.

From this information, PV’s School Data Team can identify patterns early and develop strategies to decrease behavioral problems.

Parents and PBIS

To be successful, our behavior program needs to be a partnership between home and school. Throughout the school year the PBIS team will send updates and information about PBIS. We invite your comments, concerns and ideas to make PBIS work at our school.

Please support PBIS at PV by:

pv Reviewing behavior expectations with your child.

Signing and returning the behavior slips sent home with your child.

Using the three expectations at home.


Providing positive reinforcement (rewarding good choices with compliments or quality time) at home.

Sharing comments with or asking questions of PBIS team members.
