PBIS: The Acacia Way

  • What is PBIS?

    The Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) is a School-wide proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students to achieve social, emotional and academic success. Along with Acacia, many schools within the Washington Elementary School District use PBIS to promote and maximize academic achievement and behavioral competence. 

    What is "The Acacia Way?"

    Our PBIS initiative, “The Acacia Way”, utilizes three clear expectations for the behaviors we desire in all areas of our school:

    Acacia PBIS Matrix

    These expectations are visible and modeled in every location around campus. Starting the first day of school, students will be learning about "The Acacia Way" through engaging classroom lessons, modeling, student-centered videos, and lots of practice. We encourage your student(s) to share their Acacia Way knowledge with their families. We look forward to celebrating students who are A++++ examples of "The Acacia Way".
