PBIS

Dear Parents/Guardians and Community Members,

Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) is a framework for creating a positive school climate. The basic idea is to teach the students the behavior expectations as we would any other skill, and to reinforce the positive behaviors when they are exhibited. The framework asserts that after direct instruction of expectations, at least 85% of students will be on board. The data shows we usually exceed 85% buy in from our students at Upper Darby High School. Then it is that 10-15% of students who need an additional intervention for support to internalize the rules and systems of our building. Just like with math or reading, we do not all learn the same, or at the same rate.

During the first year of implementation (2014-15) we created a student leadership group to allow for student voice to help shape the climate and culture of our building. The students voted to coin the high school's version of PBIS, the Royal Revolution. Their main goal was to improve the community's opinion of our school and to make UDHS a place they were proud to come every day. Although the group changes with each year, their passion and dedication remain the same. They want to make a difference and leave a legacy. Our students are truly amazing people, and I am glad to know and understand them on a level outside of the classroom. They are willing to do anything to improve everyone's experiences within the district.

We will continue to recognize our students who are working hard and following the expectations on many different levels. More importantly, we will work harder to reach our students who do not feel connected to UD. Both the student and adult Royal Revolution teams agree that building relationships and community in our building is the best way to promote a positive school climate. In addition,we want to build relationships throughout the community so that our lessons follow our students into their neighborhoods. We are all in this together.

If you would like to work with our team on any projects, please feel free to email me any time at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. We look forward to working with you and your sons and daughters to strengthen the Upper Darby community from the schools to your doorstep.

Sincerely,

Christa Palladino
