Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports

George Eagles SOAR!

Safety, On Task, Always Respectful, Responsible!

At George, the four behavioral expectations are safety, on task, always repsectful, and responsible.  A matrix has been created that outlines what safety, on task, always respectful, and responsible behavior looks like in the key areas of the school.  Students are taught the behavioral expectations at the beginning of the year and go through a review each month.  Students who demonstrate safety, on task, always respectful, and responsible behavior receive SOAR Tickets.  SOAR Tickets can be used at the student store, for monthly drawings for ice cream with the principal, student of the month drawings, and/or positive notes or phone calls home.
