One of the foremost advances in schoolwide discipline is the emphasis on schoolwide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments. Instead of using a piecemeal approach of individual behavioral management plans, a continuum of positive behavior support for all students within a school is implemented in areas including the classroom and non-classroom settings (such as hallways, buses, and restrooms). Positive behavior support is an application of a behaviorally-based systems approach to enhance the capacity of schools, families, and communities to design effective environments that improve the link between research-validated practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occurs. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining Tier 1 supports (universal), Tier 2 supports (targeted group), and Tier 3 supports (individual) systems of support that improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, work, recreation) for all children and youth by making targeted behaviors less effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional.

Trustworthiness is being honest, telling the truth, keeping promises, and being loyal so people can trust you. Trustworthy people don’t lie, cheat, or steal. They have integrity and the moral courage to do the right thing and to stand up for their beliefs even when it is hard to do so.
Respect is showing others that they are valued for who they are, for their character, not what they look like or what they have. It means treating others the way you want to be treated, never insulting or making fun of others who are different in looks, ability, race, or religion. A respectful person is polite, does not use bad language, and never hits or uses violence.
Responsibility is doing what you are supposed to do. Responsible people think ahead, set reasonable goals, control their temper, and always do their best. They are persevering and they don’t give up easily. Responsible people are accountable for the consequences of their choices; they don’t blame other for their mistakes.
Fairness is being fair, playing by the rules, taking turns, sharing, and listening to what others have to say. Fair people do not take advantage of others. They consider all sides before they decide, and they don’t blame others for something they did not do.
Caring is being kind, helpful, and generous to everyone. Caring people are not selfish; they are considerate because they consider how their conduct affect others as well as how others feel. Caring people are charitable and forgiving, and they do good deeds without expectation of reward.
Citizenship is doing your share to make your community a better place. Good citizens are good neighbors. They cooperate with other, obey laws and rules, respect authority, and protect the environment.
