Bacon County Elementary School PBIS Mission:
Bacon County Elementary School has adopted Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS), which is an educational tool and philosophy whereby we believe that all students at all grade levels should have; desired behaviors and expectations taught with rewards for individuals and whole-groups meeting those expectations.
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS) is an evidence-based, data-driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents, increase a school’s sense of safety, and support improved academic outcomes.
The premise of PBIS is that continual teaching, combined with acknowledgement or feedback of positive student behavior will reduce unnecessary discipline and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety and learning.
PBIS Lesson are taught for:
1) how to move from class to class
2) how to move in the lunch line
3) how to put away trash in lunch
4) how to visit the nurse
etc. Students will rise to the expectations, if they know what they are:
Below are some example lesson plans for PBIS Behaviors

Anti-Bullying Magic Show by Earl Long
One Goal of PBIS is to define a behavior and the expectations for that behavior.
For example, bullying is a behavior which is interpreted/viewed by the eye of the beholder. At BCES for every behavior we attempt to:
1) Create a universal definition of the behavior
2) Identify appropriate expectations for that behavior
3) Universally adapt consequences for violating that behavior
4) Reward students for meeting the expectations for that behavior.
Students & Classes earn Raider Bucks for meeting expectations, where they may be redeemed for picnics, parties, recess, etc.
Each 9 weeks twp students from each homeroom are voted as "Raider Kids," who embody the Ready, Respectful, and Responsible characteristics taught at BCES.
