ADDISON – Addison Trail High School's Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) team recently hosted its annual end-of-year barbecue.

The PBIS program was implemented in fall 2007 and teaches and re-teaches students expected behaviors, rules and what it means to be a Blazer. The goal of the program is to develop a positive school climate through creating common language and standards, according to a District 88 newsletter.

The barbecue is a time to celebrate improved behaviors at Addison Trail, and it is an opportunity to communicate behavioral data for the year. It also closes the loop on the PBIS team’s plan to set goals, meet goals and communicate progress.

This year, the PBIS program helped lead to a decrease in the areas of class behavior issues, physical and verbal altercations, and bullying, the newsletter stated.

Community members, including members of the Addison Fire Protection District and DeVry University, volunteered during the event May 28. Administrators took to the grill and cooked up lunch for students and staff.
