Behavior Support

As a community, Colorow Elementary supports a positive behavior support system which rewards student behaviors that promote a positive environment for the success of all students.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive systems approach to establishing the behavioral supports an social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success. This team-based framework is for creating and sustaining safe and effective schools. Emphasis is placed on prevention of problem behavior, development of pro-social skills, and the use of data-based problem solving for addressing existing behavior concerns. School-wide PBIS increases the capacity of Colorado Elementary to educate all students utilizing research-based, school-wide classroom, and inpidualized interventions.

The Colorow PBIS committee is comprised of administration and representatives from general education and special education staff. This committee has created the Colorow Behavior Matrix which outlines school-wide behavior expectations across all areas for the school. Check out our students demonstrating these behaviors on our PBIS bulletin boards in the hallway.

Colorow students are reinforced for demonstrating

safe, respectful, and responsible behavior at school.

Colorow staff are using either Dojo points, an online tool for tracking positive behavior, or tickets to reinforce students who follow the behaviors outlined on the matrix. Every Friday students are able to cash in their points or tickets for special passes.

As part of our behavior expectations at Colorow, students are expected to maintain the appropriate voice level across all areas of the building.
