Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS)
PBIS Description & Expectations:

UNHS is proud to institute Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) this year. PBIS supports the success of ALL students. PBIS will integrate our motto of Respect, Responsibility and Reason. PBIS is a system of rewards to encourage positive behaviors.

Students are expected to respect themselves, their classmates, the staff, school visitors, and the building (keeping it clean). Students are responsible for their actions and words. They should use reason when making decisions and take into consideration how what they do or say will affect themselves and others.

Students are expected to show proper behaviors the entire time they are on school grounds. Upon entering the building they will present their ID cards for scanning, put away and keep away electronics and hats for the entire time they are in school. Students will be prepared for class with the appropriate materials (pens, paper, books, and homework) and will speak respectfully. In the hallways students will walk quietly from one class to the next promoting an academic culture. Students will attend all classes and will have an appropriate pass when in the hallway. Students will stay in the cafeteria at lunchtime and clean-up after themselves. Students will develop and achieve academic and social goals.

UNHS’s goal is to maximize academic and social success for all students in a positive and safe school environment, so students are prepared for college and the workforce.

Rewards will be given to reinforce positive behaviors. Requested rewards will include school dances, raffles, coupons for homework passes, extra-credit points earned in classes, and various school supplies and snacks.

Donations are greatly appreciated.

We need parental support to ensure the success of PBIS at UNHS. The voices of family and community members are involved directly on the school leadership team, and school surveys. If you have questions, please contact Ms. Catania at 212 962-4341 ext. 5012 or go to www.pbis.org.
