School Wide Positive Behavior Interventions & Support

Every student has the right to be educated in a safe, respectful and welcoming environment. Every educator has the right to teach in an atmosphere free from disruption and obstacles that impede learning. An orderly, safe environment can best be achieved through the implementation of consistent school-wide positive behavior supports and discipline plans at every school in the Lafayette Parish School System. Positive behavior interventions and supports include: teaching school expectations and rules; re-teaching school expectations and rules periodically; reinforcing appropriate student behaviors; using effective classroom management and positive behavior support strategies such as early intervention for misconduct and appropriate use of consequences.

The Juvenile Justice Education Partnership Act of 2003 and the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education's Model master Plan for Discipline initiated the framework for implementing, developing and refining a culture of discipline conducive to learning based upon school-wide positive behavior interventions and supports. School-wide positive behavior interventions and supports is based upon research that indicates that the most effective discipline systems uses proactive strategies designed to prevent discipline problems.
