In the second part of our conversation with Huron Elementary School in California, we dive deep into two important aspects of any PBIS initiative: parent involvement and the school store.
In order to help Huron’s students fulfill the expectation to S.O.A.R. (Safety – Own Your Choices – Achieve Your Goals – Respect and Responsibility), the school conducts outreach to their parents.
About Huron Elementary:
In the small rural community of Huron, there are a large number of farm and migrant workers, and many do not speak fluent English. Despite a language barrier, most parents are eager to be involved in the school community. To this end, much of the communication that Huron’s staff does with parents is bilingual, and many times they must meet them “where they are” in terms of technology.

In this portion of our conversation, topics included:
- How to do parent outreach
- How to adapt communication to connect with parents
- Organizing and fulfilling orders in the school store
- Using Zones of Regulation and employing PBIS Rewards’ SEL Check feature
Parents are especially grateful for the school’s involvement in student social and emotional development. Whenever a student self-reports a Red Zone check-in, the school is alerted and follows up with the student. If needed, they also contact the parent(s) to make them aware of the issue.
PBIS Rewards has made it possible for Huron Elementary to operate in a virtual environment and still implement a PBIS initiative. The solution allows them to track student behavior and social and emotional learning as well as provide detailed reports to help them improve their initiative. The power to make data-based decisions!
