Alta Staff Awarded and Recognized

 

Alta staff is dedicated to PB+IS implementation. During the 2017-2018 school year Alta earned recognition from the Fresno County Office of Education for being a Platinum Level Model School. Platinum status is achieved when a school has successfully implemented PB+IS for five years, has achieved Gold status two years in a row, and demonstrates exemplary implementation of PB+IS. Platinum implementation is evidence that the staff honor positive behavior expectations schoolwide and have supports in place to monitor effectiveness of the program and provide interventions for students as needed. The staff works diligently each day to recognize students following expectations and reach out and support students in need of re-teaching or reflecting. We are proud to be a Platinum Champion Model School and are positive our students will continue to SOAR through the coming years!

PB+IS Behavior Data
 
Alta's PB+IS team monitors behavior data from student referrals which are entered in an online database called SWIS. During regular monthly meetings the team discusses the SWIS data and responds with re-teaching, extra supervision or support as needed. Once the team reviews the data and plans support. Information is shared with staff during our weekly staff meetings at "PB+IS update" time on the agenda.
 
There are several ways to extract behavior data from SWIS. Referrals by location, referrals by time and referrals by problem behavior are important to the PB+IS team at Alta.
