Wildcats Have P.R.I.D.E

P - Positive Words & Actions

R - Respect of Self and Others

I - Integrity and Honor

D - Discipline and Self-Control

E - Excellence in Everything You Do

Positive Behavior Intervention and Support is a nationally recognized research based best practice that is designated by the Office of Special Education Programs as one of the “Ideas that Work. “ PBIS is a school-wide program designed to provide universal strategies and additional layers of interventions for students in need of support. Schools that sustain administrative and staff commitment and implement PBIS with fidelity over time demonstrate the following outcomes:

  • Improved school climate
  • Reductions in Office Discipline Referrals (ODRs) and in school and out of school suspensions
  • Increased parent and community satisfaction
  • Improved systems for responding to students in need of additional support with social behavior

Walnut Creek is participating in the PBIS initiative & is currently developing specific desired outcomes, identifying data sources that will be used to measure progress and creating an action plan to support the accomplishment of outcomes.
