Crisp County High School is one of many schools using a proven new approach to discipline in our schools, The Cougar Way. This "positive behavior intervention and support" or PBIS system focuses not on the discipline of poor behavior, although that is certainly a component, but rather focuses on supporting and rewarding the positive behaviors that the vast majority of our students do daily. So much attention is traditionally focused on the students who are not behaving, but this system trains teachers to notice and reward those students that are doing what is right. This attention shift will often redirect problem behaviors, since problem behaviors are often attention-seeking.
The Cougar Way is focused on three behaviors that we would like to see.
Student can earn PBIS reward points for displaying responsibility, respectfulness and school safety. Points can be redeemed for prizes.
