PBIS is implemented as a school-wide positive behavior program. Students are encouraged to show HERO behavior by being safe, ready, polite and responsible in all areas of the school building. Students are rewarded with positive praise from all staff. It is expected that all staff model positive behavior and use teachable moments to help children recognize when they are not making such good choices. Whittier's PBIS program is strong, allowing us to win a gold ribbon for the past two school years.
