Our district believes introducing, modeling, and reinforcing positive social behavior is an important step of a student's educational experience. Teaching behavioral expectations and rewarding students for following them is a much more positive approach than waiting for misbehavior to occur before responding. The purpose of implementing a school wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework is to establish a climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm, positively impacts student outcomes and academic success.
Pataskala Elementary utilizes PAX in our building. The PAX Good Behavior Game™ (PAX GBG) teaches students self-regulation, self-control and self-management while collaborating with others for peace, productivity, health & happiness.
