Prospect Heights School D23

Sullivan Rocks 
We begin every school year with a Sullivan Rocks Kick-Off Assembly to talk with the children about what the expectations are in the school, and to practice what is expected in the hallway, in the bathroom, at the recess area, and during dismissal.   We practice the expectations for lunch and the expectations for bus riders.  Students know the expectations in their own classrooms, but  the universal system is for learning the school-wide expectations.  All staff, parents, and children will know what is expected in the school.  This approach is called PBS (Positive Behavior Support).  
Positive Behavior Support is a research based systems approach to establish the behavioral supports needed for all students to be successful socially, emotionally, and academically.  Clear expectations are taught, modeled, and reinforced across all settings by all staff members.  
Research has shown that punishment without positive strategies is ineffective.  Teaching the behavioral expectations and recognizing students is an important part of a child's education to help them be successful in school.  The purpose of PBS is to create a positive school climate. 
The organization of this system was completed by the Universal Team, made up of a group of Anne Sullivan staff.  Then plans were discussed as an entire school. We hope that you will work with us to enhance the school climate at Anne Sullivan School.
