PBS provides a positive and effective alternative to the traditional methods of discipline. PBS methods are research-based and proven to significantly reduce the occurrence of problem behaviors in the school, resulting in a more positive school climate and increased academic performance. PBS advocates the use of positive behaviors interventions and school-based disciplinary strategies that reduce or eliminate the need to use suspension and expulsion as disciplinary options.
What is PBS?
The GATOR buck is "currency" that the students earn when they are caught doing something great! GATOR stands for Goal Driven, Attentive & Safe, Trustworthy, On Task, & Respectful. We have specific behavior expectations in each category and the student can earn rewards by cashing in the GATOR bucks they ear for being caught following the rules.
