At Dr. Charles R. Drew Elementary School we believe in the importance of teaching students behavioral expectations throughout the school community. The PBIS behavior matrix is a chart that clearly communicates our school’s expectations for positive behaviors for students throughout our school building. It assists Teachers, Administrators and all staff in teaching, modeling, and reinforcing PBIS in all areas of our school including the classroom, hallway, auditorium, playground, cafeteria, and bathroom.The purpose of a PBIS Behavior Matrix is to identify and display positive behaviors across all school contexts and settings. It is a reference that helps the school community consistently reinforce our set of key behavioral expectations during our students’ daily routines. When expectations are visibly displayed in the classroom and other settings, it helps to increase students’ understanding of school-wide expectations, and lists specific examples of actions students can take to meet these expectations.
