• What is PBIS @ Seltzer? 

    Marion C. Seltzer School has a positive program to create a safer and more effective school called the Seltzer Star Program based on the research-based program called Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS).  PBIS creates safer and more effective schools. It is an all-school approach to teach and support positive behavior for all students. It is an approach to creating a safe and productive learning environment where teachers can teach and all students can learn.
    PBIS School Wide Rules and Expectations  
    Marion C. Seltzer School has adopted a unified set of three rules:
    1. Be Safe
    2. Be Respectful
    3. Be Responsible

     For each setting in the school, there is a unified set of behavior expectations for all scholars that define what each rule looks like and sounds like in each of the settings.  The three rules and the school wide expectations are taught and reinforced throughout the school day.  Click here for Seltzer's School Wide Expectations. 

    PBIS Positive Reinforcement  
    Each scholar has the opportunity to earn 10 Seltzer Stars for each school day that the student is in attendance at Marion C. Seltzer School:

    • Be present
    • Be on time
    • Be in dress code
    • Have all materials/planner
    • Homework on time
    • Behavior, which includes: classroom, hallway, cafeteria, special subjects, playground  

    PBIS Interventions and Consequences  
    The purpose of PBIS is to keep scholars safe and to create a school environment where students can learn and teachers can teach.  When a scholar makes a behavior choice that violates one of our three rules, interventions and consequences will be enacted.

    Each scholar’s star goal is to be at 80 % positive or higher at all times.
