Orangethorpe Elementary: Scanning Students for Success
Imagine a learning environment where students are recognized and acknowledged for their positive student behavior by all staff members within a few seconds. This is what Orangethorpe Elementary has adopted and implemented school wide in order to recognize student behavior in a fun and innovative way; this is PBIS Rewards. PBIS Rewards is an automated electronic school wide PBIS management system where adults can scan student bar codes giving points to students. Once students have accumulated a certain amount of points then they have various opportunities to gain special privileges, activities or even visit the Orca Emporium student store. With PBIS Rewards teachers can individually monitor their student points, administrators can clearly see how teachers are utilizing PBIS and improving our school culture. Orangethorpe is committed to supporting our students achieve and meeting the needs of the whole child. Our students are motivated to follow “The Orca Way” and aim for success.
