Positive Behavior Intervention Strategy (PBIS)

Hartley's school-wide discipline program is called WCRB (Work-Cooperate-Respect-Belong).

All Hartley’s staff (teachers, paraprofessionals, cooks, custodians, secretaries, and the principal!) support and teach WCRB. We have developed “Above the Line”, “Below the Line”, and “Bottom Line” behavior lists for our classrooms and school. We expect all students and staff to demonstrate “Above the Line” behaviors. “Below the Line” behaviors (Example: name-calling, late assignments) may result in “Fix Its” (plans to improve) or blue slips which are sent home daily. “Bottom Line” behaviors (Example: fighting, harassment, etc.), are brought to the principal’s attention immediately.
