Pbs Expectation Matrix

PBS Expectation Matrix
PBS stands for Positive Behavior Support. We have been using PBS since 2008. Our "Big 3" expectations are Safe, Respectful and Responsible. When students are caught doing one of these expectations they are rewarded a gem. They can then turn the gem in for a reward. If the class is caught doing one of these expectations they are rewarded a gold token and after 20 gold tokens they have a class celebration.
