The Positive Family Support Program and the Family Resource Center are designed to compliment School-Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. At Hillcrest, students learn the Keys to the Castle (Respect Yourself, Respect Others and Respect Property). You can learn more about PBIS below.
 

About PBIS


PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports. It is a program designed to teach respect, responsibility and safety at school. At Hillcrest Intermediate School, we hope to encourage students to continuously make good behavioral choices by implementing this program.



PBIS provides teachers and other school staff with information to help prevent behavioral problems and help make school a safe learning environment. PBIS is a research-based program which can result in:
 
  • Increased time for instruction
  • An increase in positive behaviors school-wide
  • A decrease in disruptive behavior
 
How the Program Works

Thanks to a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, we are able to implement this program in our school. Posters that highlight behavior expectations for all areas of the school from classroom, cafeteria, hallway, bus and restroom, will remind students of what is expected from them in each area.
 
  • All students and staff are taught the school-wide expectations
  • Students will receive frequent reviews of the expectations and be acknowledged when they demonstrate them. (via the Noble Knights 200 Club)
  • Most of the contact that students have with adults in the building is positive and prevents problem behavior from occurring
  • Staff will use data to help identify students who need additional support
