"Do the right thing!"
This school year Oliver Springs High School will be implementing School-Wide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS). SWPBS is a comprehensive positive approach that is nationally recognized, researched-based, and designed to enhance the capacity of schools in establishing school-wide rules and expectations in an effort to reduce the number of discipline problems and promote a safe and positive learning environment.
Oliver Springs High School has three school-wide rules
1. Be Ready
2. Be Responsible
3. Be Respectful
OSHS has dedicated significant attention to systematically teaching students the expected behaviors. All teachers will base their classroom expectations around these three rules. Students will participate in lessons at the beginning of the school year to learn what these rules mean in all areas of the school. Teachers will continue the discussion with what these rules look like in their classrooms and reteach the rules throughout the school year. The SWPBS committee believes that if students see what is expected of them, they will rise to these expectations.
