Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based, data-driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents, increase a school’s sense of safety and support improved academic outcomes. More than 16,000 U.S. schools are implementing PBIS. The premise of PBIS is that continual teaching, combined with acknowledgement or feedback of positive student behavior will reduce unnecessary discipline and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety and learning.

All Barrow County Schools participate in PBIS.

Yargo's PBIS 

Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports

Yargo encourages positive behavior. Our students are always Ready, Respectful, and Responsible. We use a clip system in our school throughout the classroom, lunchroom, and specials. Each teacher carries a “pride stick” for the class. Clips will be moved up and/or down throughout the day, depending on their behavior. At the end of the day, your child will be awarded a certain amount of points depending on what color they land on. The colors and points are as follows:

Blue: You are a leader! 3 points

Orange: You are ready to lead! 2 points

Green: You are ready to learn! 1 point

Yellow: Oops, you got off track. Try harder tomorrow! 0 points

Red: Not a great day, parent contact. 0 points
