Rhinelander School District Enforces Positive Behavior Submitted: 01/10/2013
Story By Shardaa Gray


RHINELANDER - Time-outs, grounding and no TV. If you're a parent, you know punishments like these don't always work.

The Rhinelander School District knows that too.

That's why they're focusing on praising positive behavior instead of punishing the negative.

At Crescent School, students did a matrix walk through classrooms.

It was meant to teach them behavior expectations.

It's called Positive Behavior Intervention and Support.

Kindergarten teacher Mandy Olson loves everything about it because the kids know exactly what's expected.

"I just wanted to add that it allows every student to feel successful and feel ownership about their school so that they can feel responsible and do their best at school, academically and behaviorally positive." said Olson.

Scott Wallace is the External Coach for the Rhinelander School District. He believes PBIS gives the students the opportunity to display what they can do in an educational environment.

"How do we expect our children to behave if we haven't shown, taught and retaught them the expectation in the authentic environment which they're expected to display that behavior." said Wallace.

To learn more about positive behavior reinforcement, you can go to Crescent's "Back to School Night" on February 7th.

It's open to the public.
