Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support
The Mount Holly Township School District believes that an effective learning environment includes creating an improved school climate that fosters positive choices, increased learning time, and positive social skills. PBIS is a team based, systematic approach to teaching behavioral expectations for all students throughout the school. It is based on a proactive model which teaches the behaviors, reinforces, and recognizes students who are able to model these behaviors. The Mount Holly School District is determined to provide this atmosphere by using a tiered framework* that is focused on delivering effective interventions and supports for students driven by data to cultivate social, emotional, and academic excellence. At F.W Holbein Middle School our focus is on three principles: To be Respectful, To be Responsible, To Be Ready.
Our intent for character education is to eliminate bullying, teach tolerance, embrace diversity, and provide the tools and resources to be upstanding students and citizens. School-wide Positive Behavior Support is a nationally recognized, evidence-based three-tiered approach to building a positive school climate that builds a continuum of supports for students to promote positive social behaviors.
Students are required to wear their ID badges in order to participate in the PBIS program. All students can earn, spend, and keep track of their BRAVE bucks through the PBIS Rewards Program to support the behavior expectations:
- Be Respectful
- Be Responsible
- Be Ready
