BKW was recently awarded a $1,000 grant from the Office Depot Foundation to help fund its new Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) initiative at the elementary school. This grant was written with the help of the Capital Region BOCES Grants & Development Service.
BKW Elementary students are being encouraged to make progress toward positive behavior goals through positive reinforcement "gotchas" from teachers and staff, which can be traded at the school's PBIS Store for school supplies such as such as notebooks, pens, pencils and stickers.
The total budget for the PBIS incentive for 2013-14 is $5,000. Office Depot Foundation support of $1,000 will help meet the need in supplies required for the program.
