CCS starts positive behavior program
Chase County Schools (CCS) implemented its new positive behavior program earlier this month.
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), rewards CCS students for positive behavior.
“The goal of PBIS is to teach positive behaviors as you would teach any subject in school,” Elementary Principal Becky Odens said.
The program’s statement is, “Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible.”
When CCS staff sees positive behavior demonstrated, students receive a ticket.
“All staff can give out tickets,” Odens said. “Teachers, custodians, lunch ladies—anyone.”
