PBIS - Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports


Throughout the 2017-18 school year a team of teachers, counselors, and administrators met to discuss how to implement a Positive Behavior Intervention and Support model at Chippewa Valley.  PBIS systems are very popular in elementary and middle school environments; however, in high school settings a PBIS model is not as prevalent. Our team investigated the current research related to the success of PBIS systems and decided to develop a model here at Chippewa Valley.  As a PBIS team, we feel this is our best way to help students develop their greatest capacity to learn professionalism and to develop the key social skills necessary to be successfully employed beyond high school.  A big thank you to the following staff members who served on this team; Mike Matway, Gina Rossi, Cara Konicek, Dawn Makar, Stephanie Pitcher, and Karen Furstenberg represented the main building.  The 9th Grade Center staff who served on the PBIS team are Heidi Amdhar, Brian Hayes, Brian Piscopink, Nicole Roldan, Debbie Wall, and Karen Hines.   The commitment and enthusiasm for this project is reflected in the hard work and details that our community will see throughout the campus to promote our PRIDE.

The PBIS theme at Chippewa Valley is built on the concept of Big Red PRIDE:

  • Prepared
  • Respectful
  • Integrity
  • Dedicated
  • Engaged

The BEHAVIOR MATRIX the team designed will be implemented in both the 9th Grade Center- and the main building. This matrix will serve as a tool to help staff teach and reinforce critical behaviors related to the themes above in various areas within the building.  It is our goal to use our monthly student recognition programs to highlight students who are exemplifying these attributes.  Please continue to support us, by talking with your students about these essential character traits.  Together, we can use our Big Red PRIDE to set high expectations for student behavior and professionalism at Chippewa Valley.
