POSITIVE BEHAVIORAL INTERVENTIONS AND SUPPORTS (PBIS)
Olive Crest Academy believes in a culture that is positive and preventative, creating an effective learning environment for all students. Our purpose is to build a foundation to foster lifelong emotional, behavioral, and academic learning in a safe and nurturing environment by teaching three core values: OCA - respecting Others, having a Considerate attitude, and displaying Academic responsibility.
Our school has developed a consistent set of school-wide expectations we require at specific locations on our campus. These are referred to as our behavioral matrices. We have implemented a school-wide Positive Behavioral and Interventions and Support System (PBIS) that is data-driven, research-based and has a continuum of behavior interventions and supports.
Our belief is to specifically define and teach positive expectations that will provide pathways to lifelong success. We believe in recognition and acknowledgment of pro-social behaviors. Students must understand the consistent consequences of making choices in order to empower themselves to make better choices by providing corrective feedback.
Students are praised and acknowledged for demonstrating core values by receiving points on a daily basis. Crest Cash can be earned for extraordinary examples of the above-mentioned core values: OCA - respecting Others, having a Considerate attitude, and displaying Academic responsibility. Crest Cash is redeemable for items in the student store on a weekly basis.
