Code of Behavior


The Bishop School Community utilizes a school-wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) incentive system to encourage students to follow the 3 R's: Respect, Responsibility, and Regard for Others. PBIS is a framework that teaches and reinforces school-wide behavior expectations to all students in all settings. PBIS involves all students and all staff working together to demonstrate positive behavior and experiences.  The goal is to develop supportive learning environments and opportunities that will nurture the social, academic, emotional and behavioral needs of all students and allow them to learn and thrive.


The following are core components of a Tier 1 PBIS system that we utilize at Bishop:
  • Defined behavior expectations, which include 3 positively stated expectations: Respect, Responsibility, and Regard for Others
  • Teaching behavioral expectations, which includes formal lesson plans on teaching behavior throughout the school.
  • School-wide acknowledgement system for regularly reinforcing and rewarding positive student behavior: blue tickets.
  • Bishop has Community Matrix posters throughout the school defining expected behaviors in all settings of the school demonstrating the 3 R's

When students are meeting the expectations, teachers and staff MAY give out BISHOP BEAR TICKETS

that will be entered into a basket in the office by the student or teacher

Each week, two tickets will be pulled from the basket and those students will choose a prize from the prize menu!
