Congratulations to East Coventry and North Coventry Elementary Schools for state recognition at the 2013 PAPBS Network Implementers’ Forum for meeting the criteria for implementing School-Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (SWPBIS) with fidelity at the universal systems level (Tier 1) during the 2012-2013 school year. Each school was recognized at the Forum and received a banner to display in their schools.
North Coventry's Guidance Counselor, Suzanne Grashof and the CCIU Behavior's Consultant, Charlie Robey were instrumental in the development of Wally’s Way in order to establish a culture of respect for self, others, the school, and the environment. Mr. Robey has provided the staff with critical guidance and professional development on positive behavior support for the past two years. Sue serves as the leader for the School Wide Positive Behavior Support Task Force that is composed of Dr. Lloyd and 15 teachers (one from each grade level, learning support, and special areas). Their leadership and commitment to creating a pervasive culture of respect help to earn North Coventry this distinction.
East Coventry's Sandy Fondren was instrumental in working alongside Principal Todd Oswald to create a team of East Coventry staff members who designed the positive behavior program WildCat Way, which is a program that encourages students to be respectful, be safe and be responsible. Under the leadership of Fondren, the team meets periodically to review behavior data and modify the approach as needed. It is because of her dedication and leadership to the program that East Coventry was a recipient of this recognition. Charlie Robey was also instrumental in the development of this program at East Coventry.
