  • PBIS is at its Best at GIVE West!


    Positive Behavior Intervention & Support (PBIS) is a nationally recognized program that is supported by the Georgia Department of Education and Gwinnett County Public Schools to promote and maximize academic achievement and behavioral competence. PBIS facilitates school-wide interventions that help all students achieve important social and learning goals.  We know that when appropriate behavior and effective teaching come together, our students will excel in their academic achievement.

    The G.I.V.E. philosophy is Ready, Responsible, and Respectful.  As a part of PBIS, we have established clear behavioral expectations throughout the school.  These expectations are taught through our advisement program here at GIVE West and are clearly and visually posted throughout the school.   It is a school-wide expectation that all students and staff become familiar with the G.I.V.E. philosophy.   

    Another important component of PBIS is rewarding students who make a conscious effort socially.  Therefore, PBIS rewards and acknowledges students with prizes/celebrations on a daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly basis for their behavioral achievements.  Our PBIS school-wide expectations focus on monthly targeted positive behavior, which in turn foster a safer school environment and allows teachers to maximize instructional time.  

    We sincerely believe that by helping students practice good behavior, we are building a school community where all students have an environment where they can succeed, learn, and grow.

    Please join us in this unified effort to ensure that all of our students are GIVE(N) the opportunity to improve each day by encouraging your child to follow school rules and perform to the best of their ability.
