Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS)
Twentynine Palms High School, along with all of the schools in the Morongo Unified School district, use the research based program PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports). This program is funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Office to support schools to build systems for implementing a multi-tiered approach to social, emotional and behavior support. The purpose of PBIS is to improve the social, emotional and maximize academic achievement academic outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities and students from underrepresented groups. As a part of the PBIS program, we have established developmentally appropriate school-wide behavioral expectations that will be taught, modeled, practiced, and reinforced throughout the school year. Our School-wide expectations of Be Prompt, Be Prepared, and Be Polite will be clear to students throughout our classrooms and non-classroom settings such as the outside areas, cafeteria, bathrooms, office and buses and will provide a common language for everyone at the high school. We will recognize the positive behaviors of students who do what is expected of them as well as supporting students who need extra assistance to reach our school-wide expectations. Every week we will celebrate these students in the PBIS program with prizes, photos, and positive phone calls home.
