PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) is in full swing at OSTC-SE. One of the methods Student Support Specialist Eric Scott uses to encourage positive behavior is by honoring them at a Student of the Month celebration.
Once a month each program sends one student (per session) down to the Clipboard Café in our Culinary cluster. There, they are treated to a sit-down breakfast or lunch while Mr. Scott and Dean Gole hand out certificates and speak about their accomplishments.
Students are selected by their instructors based on improvements in attendance, achievement, and behavior. Mr. Scott believes bring attention to positivity and progress goes a long way towards supporting the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral competence, as well as the overall wellbeing of our students.
