Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports is a system of recognizing, encouraging, and rewarding the positive behavior of students at Oak Grove Middle School. Students who follow a set of school-wide expectations for all areas of the school (classroom, hallways, cafeteria, restrooms, morning areas, library, etc.) receive recognition in the form of various rewards throughout the school year.
Students are the top priority of the faculty and staff at Oak Grove Middle School. We are here to provide the best education that we possibly can. An added responsibility that we consider fundamental to our students' success is helping them attain certain valuable life skills.
What are expectations?
Expectations are behaviors that are expected from all students. For example, we are expected to throw all trash into a trash can. It is an expectation, so that is what we do.
Why do students need rewards?
Rewards are intended to encourage positive behaviors and ultimately decrease negative behaviors. Teachers give daily and weekly rewards in the form of verbal praise, daily and extra break, bell work or homework passes, Warrior Bucks, small prizes, etc. Larger rewards are given monthly (popcorn party, movie, free dress day, etc.) and by semester.
What are Warrior Bucks?
Warrior Bucks are small tickets that are awarded by teachers when students meet expectations. The tickets are collected at certain points for a school-wide drawing and other school-wide rewards giving students a chance at additional small prizes.
