Do you know what PBIS is?


Verdugo Woodlands is a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) school. PBIS is a way for our school to encourage good behavior. With PBIS, we teach kids about behavior, just as we would teach about other subjects like reading or math. The focus of PBIS is prevention, not punishment.


Our mascot is the coyote and our School-wide Behavior Expectations are presented in the HOWLS acronym:

H - Have respect for everyone.

O - Own my actions.

W - Work and play safely.

L - Learn with intention.

S - Show kindness.
