Browning Elementary moves in a positive direction

Browning Elementary students are celebrating a positive turn as part of a new program - Browning Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) program.

"Our School Improvement Plan (SIP) wanted a positive and proactive approach to introduce students to behaviors we want them to display as opposed to the ones we don’t want them to emulate," principal Nina Carver-Hardiewich said. "The purpose of this program is to establish clear expectations and to encourage a sense of community in which we play a positive role in our school success and safety." 

The program utilizes proactive strategies in defining and supporting appropriate student behavior to create a positive school environment.

The PBIS team has developed school wide expectations and a system of positive reinforcement to be implemented throughout the school including the classrooms, cafeteria, bathrooms, gym, hallway, recess and the bus.
