Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

The staff of Mayfield Woods Middle is focused on working with students and their families to promote positive behavior in all school and community settings. We have four school rules which are reinforced daily.

  • Be Safe
  • Act Responsibly
  • Respect Self & Others
  • Keep Focused

We believe that compliance with these rules will allow our students the opportunity to learn in a safe and nurturing environment.

Consequences for Inappropriate Behavior

Students have been taught the school rules for classroom and non-classroom settings. If a child does not follow one of the school rules, the following procedure is followed:

  1. General Verbal Warning with reminder about appropriate behavior.
  2. Individual Verbal Warning with reminder about appropriate behavior.
  3. If the behavior does not improve, teachers may assign lunch detention (look for a sticker in the agenda book indicating lunch detention has been given), call home, send the student to another classroom, or refer the student to the office.

*  Certain actions such as fighting, use of inappropriate language, possession of contraband or weapons, harassment, bullying and threats warrant immediate administrative involvement.

Dog Bones

Students who are following the school rules in the various locations of the building will earn Dog Bones.

  • Dog Bones are given by staff to students to acknowledge individual positive behavior.
  • Once received, the Dog Bones can be used for a variety of reinforcers such as: classroom privileges, raffle bags, weekly random Dog Bone drawings, and school-wide incentive days
