Speas is a PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) School, which means that all staff members teach expected appropriate behaviors. Speas has school wide expectations on how we act in the hallway, cafeteria, bathroom, playground, and all areas of the building. Students are taught positive behaviors, students get opportunities to model and practice positive behaviors and when expected behaviors are not being exhibited by students staff members will use a variety of appropriate reteaching/modeling techniques. When students are exhibiting positive behaviors they earn BEES (school wide cash) that can be spent in the school store or for monthly incentive activities/parties.
As part of our additional support and behavior self-management we use a program that helps to teach your students to identify which "zone" they are in and how to manage themselves in each Zone. The Zones are: Blue (tired, sick, sad), Green (good to go), Yellow (nervous, frustrated, confused), and Red (angry, upset, scared, acting out).
