It’s no secret that everyone loves recognition and rewards – especially students! Catching a student doing something right and rewarding that action is one of the most effective ways to foster improved behavior over the long-term.
PBIS programs are founded on this principle, and when administrated properly can be incredibly successful in improving a school’s climate. And while the basic framework of a PBIS program is universal, how schools administrate such a program can vary widely.
PBIS Rewards was developed to assist schools in creating and administrating a successful schoolwide PBIS program. By moving the PBIS framework into an electronic format, you eliminate reams of paper, pull all your data together in one place, and establish a schoolwide system in which everyone can participate.
If your PBIS system has only met with modest success, maybe it’s time to take your program to the next level. Here are ten terrific reasons to give PBIS Rewards a try:
1. Easy Setup
No special software needed – just install the free app from Google Play or the App Store. Our subscription-based system is managed through a simple web front-end to our cloud-hosted system, with an easy-to-use web portal interface.
2. Easy to Use
Award points with the click of a button and ditch the spreadsheets and piles of paper tickets you’ve been using to keep track of rewards redeemed.
3. Customer Support
Whether you’re just getting started with PBIS Rewards or are a long-time user, customer support is available via phone, email, or web to quickly solve problems.
4. New and Improved Data Reports
You need data to determine how well your PBIS program is working. Our reports can help you to parse out the specific data you need for these measurements.
5. PBIS Fidelity Tools
Fair and consistent use is essential to have schoolwide success. PBIS Rewards gives you specific tools to help you identify where improvements are needed.
6. Customizable Advanced Referral System
Instead of relying on national data to measure your referrals, you can establish the parameters for your own school and use those to get a true measurement of your referrals.
7. Electronic Coupons
PBIS Rewards not only eliminates paper tokens, it also allows you to award coupons electronically.
8. Student Goal Setting
The Student App in PBIS Rewards allows students to view their point totals, see what is available in the School Store, and set goals for themselves to purchase specific rewards. Setting goals helps students to develop the skills for self-regulation by teaching delayed gratification.
9. Workplace Rewards for Teachers
Show your staff some love with the Teacher Store! PBIS Rewards is the only PBIS program with a teacher rewards component, allowing you to reward your staff for doing a great job all year long, not just during Teacher Appreciation Week.
A successful PBIS program can make a world of difference in establishing and maintaining a positive school climate. PBIS Rewards can make the creation and administration of such a program easy and enjoyable. What more could a school ask for?
"PBIS Rewards has been a great Tier I tool for our students and staff. Our students really responded to the adult-like concept of the student ID functioning like a debit card. This has led to fewer discipline actions to follow up on. And with all of that, the cost of PBIS Rewards is equal to the cost of a paper-based system and it alleviated the challenges we faced with a paper-based rewards system."
