PBIS is a general education initiative, supporting all children and youth. PBIS is a decision-making framework that guides selection, integration, and implementation of the best evidence-based academic and behavioral practices for improving important academic and behavior outcomes for all students. In general, PBIS emphasizes four integrated elements: data for decision making, measurable outcomes supported and evaluated by data, practices with evidence that these outcomes are achievable, and systems that efficiently and effectively support implementation of these practices.

- Clip-Up Chart - Each classroom has a clip-up chart in it designed to promote positive behavior. If the student clips all the way up to Outstanding and continue to make good choices they can clip onto their teacher. They can then either clip up to Mr. Scheiderer or Ms. D"Amico. Then they will get a pencil, piece of candy, positive call home and put their name on our clip-up wall.
- Awesomizer Award - Any staff member can recognize a student for going above and beyond. That staff member then writes a letter to the student that is read over the morning announcements.
- Gold Coins - Students can earn a gold coin any time they are caught following the expectations in the common areas of the building (hallways, specials, recess, lunchroom). They then add it to the classroom collection where we tally up winners each week. The classroom from each grade then gets a reward from their teacher.
- Golden Dustpan - Each month the custodians will choose one class in each hallway who has the cleanest room. The class has ownership of the pan for the entire month. Mr. Scheiderer pthen resents it with some treats to the winning class.
- Student of the Month - Each month there is one character trait that we focus on. The homeroom teacher then chooses one student that exemplifies that specific trait. Once they are chosen, a letter will be sent home announcing that they were picked and are invited to a Student of the Month breakfast. At that time they will receive a medal, certificate and a group picture is put into the local newspaper.
- Respectful, Responsible and Safe Quarterly Awards (Grades K-2) - At each quarterly awards, kindergarten-second grade teachers choose students who were best exemplifying our mission here at South.
