Matt Wilson Elementary School is participating in an initiative titled Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS is supported by the Georgia Department of Education and the Tift County School District to promote academic success, appropriate and positive behavior, and a safe and more effective school climate in grades K-12. The goal of PBIS is to create an environment where educators can teach and all students can learn without disruption. This exciting initiative will allow MWE to:

  • Teach students the behaviors we expect
  • Provide a safe environment where students excel academically and socially
  • Encourage positive behavior and interactions
  • Decrease problem behavior and keep students in class
  • Reduce the number of office discipline referrals

Our school, as part of the PBIS initiative, has defined a set of school-wide expectations and rules for behaviors. These expectations will be posted and taught on our campus. Students who are caught exhibiting desired behaviors outlined in the behavior matrix of expectations will be rewarded with “Wilson Bucks”. Our school-wide expectations are:

  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Ready
