The 2014-15 school year was Sheridan’s first year of implementing PBIS. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. The goal of PBIS is to create and maintain a positive school community with consistent behavior expectations for all areas of the school. From the hallways to the playground, from the classrooms to the restrooms, PBIS helps Sheridan Students understand what is expected of them and provides motivation to comply with those expectations. Having specific rules of conduct for all areas on and off campus provides our students with a safe school environment where maximum learning can take place. Sheridan uses STAR tickets and classroom & trimester rewards to help us remember what to do in every area of the school. Sheridan’s STAR Behavior Expectations are that Sheridan Students will Show Respect, Take Responsibility And be Ready to Learn. The behavior matrix below shows how this looks in each area of campus. Teacher and student are each responsible to do his or her part in creating and maintaining a respectful and safe learning environment.
