• Lamarque Positive Behavior Intervention Support

    Welcome to Lamarque's school site resource dedicated to informing students, families and the community of the many initiatives guiding our school. Lamarque has several programs such as Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) and Community of Caring designed to teach and acknowledge the traits of model citizens. For this, we can refer to our vision, "The vision of Lamarque Elementary School is to embrace a community of learners that promotes pride and respect for others, celebrates individual differences, challenges students and fosters life-long learning for success in the real world." To realize this mission for every child, we utilize resources to succeed in having this impact on students.

    Positive Behavior Intervention Support is the application of evidence-based strategies and systems to assist schools in improving academic performance, enhance school safety, decrease problem behaviors, and establish a positive school culture. At the heart of this initiative is the Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) that uses the problem-solving process and specific interventions to instruct students on desired behaviors and monitor their progress. With this approach, our students are guaranteed success through the constructive and instructive support of teachers, parents, and administration. One element of these supports is the acknowledgment and celebration of great behaviors aligned with our 3 global expectations:

    • Be Respectful.
    • Be Responsible.
    • Be Safe.

    With these expectations in place and being acknowledged, students find they enjoy learning, make friends and achieve by following rules and doing what is right!
