Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports is a program supported by the Georgia Department of Education and Glynn County Schools to promote and maximize academic achievement and behavioral competence. PBIS is a school wide strategy for helping all students achieve important social and learning goals. We know that when good behavior and good teaching come together, our students will excel in their learning. Glyndale, along with all other Glynn county elementary, middle and high schools are proud to be a part of this exciting initiative.
As part of the PBIS program, Glyndale has established clear expectations for the behavior we expect in all areas of our school building. We explicitly teach these expectations to the students and reward them frequently with DoJo points, class rewards and school wide behavior celebrations. The expectations for all student behavior is posted throughout our building, on our buses, media center, bathrooms, assemblies, playground, cafeteria, hallways, activity blocks and classrooms. Please ask your child about these expectations. Ask your child to tell you about SHINE:
Glyndale students SHINE .... We have Self-Control and High-Expectations. We are Independent, Nice, and we show Effort. We SHINE every day at Glyndale!
Our school expectations specifically address expected behaviors, provide for a safer school environment and the results permit more time for instruction. We apply consistent consequences and positive reinforcement for all students. By detailing every expected behavior and teaching our students in a positive way, we provide a common language for everyone in our building. Recognition for appropriate behaviors is given in the form of DoJo points that are issued by all staff members. Goals are set for the number of Do Jo points needed to participate in special activities, earn prizes, or participate in school wide behavior assemblies. If you don't have a DoJo account please reach out to your child's teacher for the directions to set one up. We want to communicate with you about your child's behavior.
We believe that by helping students practice good behavior, we build a school community where all students have an environment where they can SHINE!
We value your input and involvement. If you have suggestions or would like to donate towards our efforts to recognize and celebrate our students, please let us know.
