To be successful, our behavior program needs to be a partnership between home and school. Throughout the school year the PBIS team will send updates and information about PBIS. We invite your comments, concerns and ideas to make PBIS work at our school.
Please support PBIS at Richland by:
  • Reviewing behavior expectations with your child.
  • Using the three expectations at home.
  • Providing positive reinforcement (rewarding good choices with compliments or quality time) at home.
  • Sharing comments or asking questions of PBIS team members.
  • Joining our Leadership Team or building teams to learn more about PBIS at Richland.

Please contact Mrs. Russell with any questions or concerns. Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Phone: 815.744.6166 ext. 3101

Behavior Matrix

Written by Super User on .

The behavior matrix is a detailed description of expected behavior in each setting of the school. For example, in the lunch room it is respectful to say “please” and “thank you.” It is responsible to clean your space. The matrix will be posted in classrooms, around school and sent home.

Teaching Expectations

Written by Super User on .

Throughout the school year, students will be taught how to behave according to the four expectations. Teachers will help students learn what the expectations “look” and “sound” like in every setting during the school day. These lessons will be re-taught and reinforced throughout the school year, and become a regular part of our instructional program.

What Is PBIS?

Written by Super User on .

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an approach to teaching and supporting positive behaviors and meeting the needs of ALL students.

This school-wide approach to discipline focuses on building a safe and positive environment in which all students can learn.

The foundation of PBIS at Richland School is the three building-wide expectations:

  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Resourceful

In addition to our behavior expectations, PBIS has three other components:

  1. a behavior matrix which explains behavior expectations in each school setting;
  2. direct teaching of the expectations;
  3. Soaring Eagle Tickets/Eagle Bucks
