School Teams: Teaching Expectations

Teaching behavioral expectations to students is a continuous process. Just as with academics, behavioral expectations need to be taught, reviewed, and taught again.

Teaching behavioral expectations within the PBIS framework includes teaching students when they return to school in the fall, providing booster lessons throughout the year based on current data about need, and re-teaching formal expectations throughout the year.

There are a variety of systems that schools use to teach expectations, such as a passport system, taking students through a station rotation, or teaching students in their homeroom/primary classroom.

No matter which way you decide to teach expectations at your school, the following presentation will give you some good starting points.
