Student Behavior

The goals and objectives of this policy are to provide effective discipline practices that: (1) ensure the safety and dignity of all students and staff; (2) maintain a positive, weapons-free, and drug-free learning environment; (3) keep school property and the property of others secure; (4) address the causes of a student’s misbehavior and provide opportunities for all individuals involved in an incident to participate in its resolution; and (5) teach students positive behavioral skills to become independent, self-disciplined citizens in the school community and society.

Student behavioral expectations are based upon respect and consideration for self and others. Northbrook District 27 utilizes Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS promotes student success by building positive school culture, providing informative corrective feedback, maximizing academic success, and acknowledging the use of positive social skills.

Each school in the District has documented a matrix of expected behaviors for multiple settings within each building. These expected behaviors are explicitly taught to students through a series of lessons addressing examples of appropriate and inappropriate school conduct. The matrices are printed in the annual publication of Rules of Conduct found on the District web site.

Student behavioral data is collected and analyzed so that school personnel can develop and implement evidence-based behavioral interventions to enhance student success in compliance with behavioral expectations.
