Our school is committed to creating a positive learning environment where students are academically and socially successful. As part of our strategic plan, we are implementing Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, a nationally validated framework for creating a positive school climate.
At Woodrow Wilson we refer to this approach as “Mustangs A.R.E ALL IN.” Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports framework is associated with increases in positive student outcomes (e.g., increase in instructional time) and decreases conduct infractions as measured by office conduct referral and suspension data. In New Jersey consistent high fidelity implementation of PBSIS has resulted in an average of 21% decrease in referrals to the office for conduct infractions and a 30% average decrease in out of school suspensions.
Through a collaborative team process, we have determined that ambition, respect and empathy are a priority at Woodrow Wilson. Only through consistent and genuine implementation of the practices in this program will we be able to achieve the types of positive outcomes we want to see at WWMS.
