Glendale Unified School District promotes Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports as an alternative to suspension. Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports focus on using school-wide and classroom strategies to help all students learn and practice those behaviors that support a respectful, responsible and safe school climate. Building strong, positive relationships between students and all adults on campus is a foundational component of this framework.
Individual teachers establish a classroom system to reward positive behaviors. In addition, each month one to one student is selected by their teacher to be featured as Students of the Month based on the GUSD Character and Ethics monthly themes. Students of the Month are recognized at monthly Golden Oak Ceremonies and given certificates that are signed by the teacher and principal.
