Wiley is a PBIS School
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
Wiley School helps students learn about and practice how to be safe, respectful, and responsible in order to make a healthy school in which to learn.
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a framework for developing strategies that help students learn good behavior. PBIS has been successful in many schools in Illinois and across the country because the PBIS approach to teaching and practicing good social skills relies on the same concepts that are used to teach academic skills.
The PBIS framework emphasizes mutual respect and good communication, resulting in a school culture where students learn more and feel less stress because everyone is respectful, responsible, and safe.
Wiley School expectations for student behavior are based on just three simple ideas that we believe are in keeping with what children are learning in their homes. At school, these three basics will be taught and practiced.
Students should: Be Responsible, Be Respectful, and Be Safe
We want to remind students and their families of a few guidelines not covered elsewhere in this handbook for making the school day a positive and safe experience for everyone.
- No shoes with wheels are allowed. They are not safe on either the school grounds or inside the school. Students will be required to take out the wheels or take off the shoes themselves if they wear the wheelies to school.
- It is not wise for students to carry cell phones to school. If the cell phone is brought to school, it must be turned off and given to the teacher, who will keep it until the end of the day. Repeated problems will result in parents being asked to pick up the phone from the Principal.
- Students should not bring CD players, Game Boys, iPods, MP3 players, PSPs, and the like. Those items will be kept by the teacher for the day. If the problem persists, parents will be expected to pick up the electronic items from the Principal.
- Students should not bring balls or other play items, such as jump ropes. The school provides balls and equipment for recess and PE. Again, the items will be held by the teacher or Principal until it is appropriate to send them home or have a parent pick them up.
