Character Counts

Last Updated: 9/1/2021 5:17 PM




PURPOSE:  PBIS is a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.

Conner High School's version, which is titled CHARACTER COUNTS, is a prevention-oriented way for school personnel to:

  • organize evidence-based practices
  • improve their implementations of those practices and
  • maximize academic and social behavior outcomes for students.

Students will succeed when positive school culture is promoted, when informative corrective feedback is provided, when academic success is enhanced, and pro-social skills are acknowledged.

REWARD SYSTEMS: Character Counts Nominations

  • Teachers and staff members will have the opportunity to nominate a student who they believe has demonstrated one of the three virtues of Conner High School. Character Counts Nominations is an elite honor.  Students who have received a nomination of all three virtues will be honored at graduation.
