• Centralia School District Positive Behavior Supports Model

    How does the Centralia School District support positive behavior?

    The Centralia School District has established a Positive Behavior Supports Model to provide optimal conditions for learning by maintaining a positive school environment where:

    • everyone is treated with respect
    • physical and emotional safety is ensured
    • responsible behavior is the norm

    Centralia School District staff support students at all stages of behavior:

    1. Prevent inappropriate behavior
    2. Prepare students to make appropriate choices
    3. Respond to inappropriate behavior
    4. Restore relationships after inappropriate behavior occurs

    To accomplish this, the Centralia School District Positive Behavior Support Model includes:

    1. Trauma-Informed Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (TI-PBIS)
    2. Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)
    3. Equitable Discipline
    4. Restorative Practices

    This model was created by the K-12 Positive Behavior Team, including administrators, teachers, counselors, and School Board representation.  The Executive Director of Teaching and Learning and the Positive Behavior Support Specialist provide staff support in implementing the Positive Behavior Supports Model across the district.

    How do school buildings support positive behavior?

    Each school has, or is currently developing, 3-5 positive behavior expectations that are taught and reinforced throughout the year.  To view a summary of expectations by building/department, click here. 

    Each school has identified an annual positive behavior goal on its School Improvement Plan (SIP).  To view your school's current SIP goals and action plans, please visit your school's website or contact your school principal.

    How can parents support positive behavior?

    Parents play a key role in supporting positive behavior that is Respectful, Responsible and Safe.  For example, you can acknowledge your child’s behavior with specific praise, such as: “Thank you for putting your dirty laundry in the hamper - that shows Responsibility.”  

    How can community partners support positive behavior?

    Community businesses and organizations can support positive behavior in many ways.  If you are interested in partnering with Centralia School District via volunteering, donations, or other contributions, please contact our Administration Office at 360-330-7600.
