Elementary school discipline referrals drop 15 percent
KCSD credits PBIS for improvement
Jackson School kindergarten students Nahlivia Greene, Tejah Crim, Anna Epps and India Brown enjoy their popcorn during a PBIS celebration at the school.
First quarter elementary discipline reports show that referrals from classrooms and buses to school offices have dropped nearly 15 percent from this time last school year. Kershaw County School District (KCSD) officials attribute much of this success to the districtwide implementation of PBIS -- Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. “Great improvement in student discipline means more time on task,” said KCSD Superintendent Frank Morgan.
