Welcome to PBIS at Woodside
Just like our school building, this site is currently under construction. Please keep checking back for updates!
What is PBIS?
PBIS is a proactive approach that schools use to improve school safety and promote positive behavior. The focus of PBIS is prevention, not punishment. At its heart, PBIS calls on schools to teach students positive behavior strategies, just as they would teach about any other subject—like reading or math.
At Woodside, we use the acronym SOAR to teach behavior expectations.
S -- Stay Safe (be safe)
O -- Own Your Actions (be responsible)
A -- Always be a Leader (be a leader)
R -- Respect Yourself & Others (be respectful)
Here is a chart of the behavior expectations in various parts of our school:

NEW SOAR MATRIX SPECIFICALLY FOR HYBRID SCHOOL
Students learn about the SOAR expectations for school. Did you know that you can also use SOAR expectations at home?
Below is an example of a SOAR chart that you can use or modify to fit your family's needs.

If you want to learn more about using PBIS at home, a brochure was created for parents by PBIS and the Center for Parent Information and Resources: SUPPORTING FAMILIES WITH PBIS AT HOME
