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 encourages positive behavior. Our students are always Ready, Respectful, and Responsible. Students are rewarded points in Class Dojo throughout the day for their positive behaviors and showing that they are a wonderful Wildcat! Each teacher will set up their point system based on the needs of their individual classes. Students are expected to be able to earn at least 3 points per day. Students who have earned enough points each month will be able to participate in a monthly celebration. The point requirement will vary based on the number of days in school for that month. We will then have a mid-year celebration in December, and an end of year celebration in May. We hope you encourage your student to R.O.A.R. and earn those points!
