PBIS Overview

Burroughs Molette Elementary School, under the guidance of the state of Georgia and Glynn County Schools, implements a behavioral framework known as Positive Behavioral Supports and Interventions (PBIS) as its tier 1 behavioral program.


School-wide, Burroughs Molette utilizes Class Dojo, a web-based behavior management system, to document and acknowledge expected behaviors based on the guiding acronym ROAR (R-Respect Self and Others, O-Own your Behavior, A-Academic Success, R-Responsibility.) 


Weekly acknowledgement systems are conducted by classroom teachers and grade-level teams while monthly celebrations are conducted school-wide. These strategically scheduled acknowledgements are designed to reward the positive behaviors demonstrated by the student body. Students work to earn a predetermined number of points that are then entered into the Class Dojo platform that teachers use to determine those students who are eligible to participate in the acknowledgement intervals.

 Additionally, quarterly PBIS Acknowledgement assemblies are conducted to acknowledge the following for both students and staff (not an exhaustive list): perfect attendance; academics; positive behavior; Golden Rule recipients; etc. 

To ensure implementation of PBIS throughout the school, grade-level teams are responsible for teaching lesson plans that address each area of the PBIS matrix (ROAR).  Included is the school-wide PBIS matrix that outlines the unifying behavioral expectations of the school.
