Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS)

Mission & Purpose

Our fundamental purpose of Hastings Public Schools is to assure all students acquire the knowledge, skills, and behaviors essential to be successful individuals and responsible citizens. Hastings High School is committed to this mission by providing a safe, respectful, and responsible learning environment for students and staff, where students have opportunities to engage in quality learning experiences and acquire values supportive of their lifelong well-being. This Positive Behavior Interventions and Support System (PBiS) is designed to facilitate high standards of behavior so that the learning and teaching in our school can be effective and students can participate positively within our school community.

School-Wide Information System

Hastings High School uses the School-Wide Information System (SWIS) to collect information about office discipline referrals and to evaluate the PBiS plan. SWIS is a web-based system that allows the school to collect accurate and timely information about discipline events. The system then summarizes the information in tables and graphs that are used to guide decision-making in order to prevent and reduce the number of problem behaviors occurring in the school. Information generated in the reports can include, but is not limited to, average referrals per month, types of problem behaviors occurring, locations of the referrals, time of day of the problem behaviors, and the administrative decision resulting from the referral.
