CALIMESA AND DUNLAP ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS PILOT POSITIVE BEHAVIOR SUPPORT PROGRAM

Positive Behavior Support (PBS) is a proactive approach based on a three-tiered model of prevention and intervention aimed at creating safe and effective schools. Emphasis is placed on teaching and reinforcing important social skills and to address behavior concerns. PBS has been demonstrated to reduce discipline problems and increase time for instruction.

Calimesa and Dunlap Elementary Schools are piloting PBS this year. For a few days, school personnel at Calimesa Elementary School asked students to “take a knee” when the bell rang. The purpose behind this practice was so that school personnel could quickly observe the entire playground. It was brought to the District’s attention that this practice concerned some of our families. The district responded to concerns regarding the program by no longer having students “take a knee.” The intent of this program was not to upset families in any way or disrupt learning at the school. It was intended to improve safe conditions for every student that attends Calimesa Elementary School.

Currently, one of the strategies to increase student safety and reduce discipline is to have students “freeze” in place when the bell rings at the end of recess and lunch. Once all of the students “freeze” in place, the school personnel dismiss students to walk to class in an orderly and safe manner.
