Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

- Who does it?
Everyone does it. We are all Grizzlies: Staff, Students, and Parents!

- What is it?
PBIS, or SWPBIS (School Wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports), organize their evidence-based behavioral practices and systems into an integrated collection or continuum in which students experience supports based on their behavioral responsiveness to intervention. A three-tiered prevention logic requires that all students receive supports at the universal or primary tier. If the behavior of some students is not responsive, more intensive behavioral supports are provided, in the form of a group contingency (selected or secondary tier) or a highly individualized plan (intensive or tertiary tier).

- Where is it?
It is everywhere: classrooms, hallways, courtyards, gyms, sporting events, assemblies, and in our community. 

- When is it?
It is ever present: Before school, during school and after school.

Standards Based Grading



The change to standards-based grading (SBG) is a significant change for schools and learners across the country. If we were just focused on teaching and grading it would be easy because we wouldn't change anything. But because we want to ensure learning in essential skills and knowledge and clearly articulate the progression of learning for each standard, it is very challenging. I have shared these challenges and our solutions at Parent Meetings and in a Q and A handout that we are continually updating as we field questions and concerns Updated GMS Parent Guide to Standards Grading 2018-19.pdf

We have 3 ways to help parents stay connected to their student's learning. None of them are perfect reports or systems and we are continuing to develop clearer forms of communication for students and families. 

1) A Bi-monthly PDF report that has all the courses with all the standards and grades for each event is pushed via email to families. Here is a video from me to help sort through this: What You Need to Know about Progress Reports - GMS  You can see the assignment/assessment grades for the specific skill/standard. We do not like that it shows ALL the standards that will not be scored. 

2) Go on to Skyward and see the assignment/assessment scores. The problem is there is a mobile version and a desktop version. They have different levels of detail that are communicated. The mobile version NOW displays missing assignments. Here are 2 videos to help sort through the two versions: Viewing the Gradebook via Family Access on a Computer- GMS  and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYmJCbwWE8w

3) Families and students can request a specific Progress Report from the teacher. It is probably the best report we can offer, but it has to be generated by the teacher and emailed individually. It needs little explanation on how to read it.

Mastery Scale



The White River School District #416 complies with all federal rules and regulations and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, including gender expression or identity, creed, religion, age, veteran or military status, disability, or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a person with a disability, and provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups. This holds true for all students who are interested in participating in educational programs and/or extra-curricular school activities. Inquiries regarding compliance procedures may be directed to the school district’s Title IX Officer and/or Section 504 Coordinator, and compliance coordinator for state civil rights laws, Scott Harrison, White River School District, P. O. Box 2050, Buckley, WA 98321, (360) 829-3822. This material is available in alternative format upon request.
