Positive Behavior System (Support)
All TJA staff focus on PBS or Positive Behavioral Support. Every classroom has its own system as to how to encourage, and highlight positive behavior and thus discourage negative behaviors at the same time. Our teachers use PBS Tools such as Positive Narration, Modeling, and Hierarchical Rewards in order to build a culture of positivity in our classrooms. Even the walls of TJA are full of positive reminders for our students all throughout the school. Of course TJA does adhere to a strict discipline policy whenever necessary, yet PBS has allowed us to minimize the need for negative consequences.
