BIA has invested in the PBIS to help manage student behavior with Positive intervention strategies. PBIS focuses on rewarding students for positive behavior instead of focusing on punishing students for inappropriate behavior.
The program was launched with a Poster contest PBIS Posters and student assemblies to explain the procedures for the program. BIA staff collaborated to create the Essential Agreement that is the guideline for behavior throughout the school.
Students receive "BIA Bucks" for good behavior in the classroom, hallways, cafeteria and playground. They can redeem their Bucks in our International Boutique, a BIA student store that offers tempting items for students.
Students can purchase school supplies, small toys, and opportunities for rewarding experiences, such as lunch with a favorite teacher or principal, a movie and popcorn day, a homework pass and more.
BIA received the PBIS Gold Banner for the 2012-2013 school years' successful PBIS program.
