Alta Elementary has implemented Positive Behavior Support and Assessment or PBIS. Our PBIS school-wide behavior expectations focus on establishing and maintaining a climate and culture where all parents, students and staff feel safe.  It is our vision to establish and maintain behavioral supports and a positive social culture needed for all students in our school to achieve social, emotional and academic success. Our parents, families and school community support the school-wide expectations for behavior and appreciate the efforts of our PBIS implementation.


Alta Eagles SOAR

  Safe-we make safe choices

    Ownership-we take ownership of our choices

       Attitude-we have a good attitude

          Respect-we respect others and their feelings

Alta students are held to high standards for behavior and are expected to be SAFE, take OWNERSHIP, have a great ATTITUDE, and be RESPECTFUL or SOAR. Students actively participate in activities teaching them how to SOAR throughout our campus. Students are recognized for positive behavior choices and re-taught behavior expectations as needed. Staff and students work together to maintain a safe school environment where learning takes place.

PBIS Goals


Each year the Alta PBIS team meet to write behavior and academic goals based on most current discipline data. This year the team set a behavior goal, an academic goal and an attendance goal. Alta staff believe that missing school is missing out. We value our students and encourage them to attend school regularly.


Behavior Goal: Alta School will decrease the number of students receiving  discipline referrals for defiant, disrespectful behavior from 20.75% to 19.0%  by the end of trimester 1, and maintain 19.0% for the remainder of the 2016-2017 school year.


Academic goal grades TK-2: Alta School will increase the number of students making progress toward proficiency as measured on the BPST in grades TK-2, by a minimum of 2% by June 2017. The goal is stated specific to the grade level and the current performance data. In grades TK and K the goal is to increase from 38 % to 40%. In 1st grade the goal is to increase from 25% to 30%, and in 2nd grade the goal is to increase from 25% to 30%.

Academic Goal Grades 2-5: Alta School will increase the number of students performing proficient or advanced on the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) in grade 2-5 by 12% by the end of the 2016-2017 school year.

Academic goal-school wide attendance: Alta School will increase school wide attendance from 97% in 2015-2016 to 97.3% by the school year.

PBIS Passport Day: All Alta students and staff participate in Passport Day which is held at the beginning of school each year. Passport Day provides an opportunity to learn and experience behavior expectations campus wide.PBIS team members teach lessons, model behavior expectations include students in activities with examples and non-examples of expected behavior. Stations are set up around the campus and students rotate through the interactive lessons.Once students have completed the training they receive a "PBIS Passport" which acknowledges their participation in learning behavior expectations.
PBIS Boost Week: Ata students and staff participate in PBIS Boost week activities which are held during trimester two each year. Boost week provides an opportunity for students to be reminded of our school-wide behavior expectations. Teachers, staff, PBIS team members and our bus drivers teach expectations using presentations, video clips and pictures of our students following expectations.
