In partnership with the University of Washington Tacoma, Point Defiance is one of twelve schools participating in "Cohort 1" for the implementation of Positive Behavior Support. What does this mean?
- School-wide structures that provide our students with clear expectation (Polar Paws).
- Ongoing, positive initiatives to recognize students and classrooms for great choices they make throughout the day
- Consistency with classroom expectations throughout the school and support for classroom teachers
- Data-driven decision making so staff can take a more proactive approach to problem-solve concerns
