What is PBSES? PBSES stands for Positive Behavior Social Emotional Support. In the Issaquah School District, our vision is to promote respect, positive relationships, and predictable, proactive learning environments so that students can lead socially and emotionally safe and healthy lives.
PBSES @ PCMS As the PBSES Coach at Pacific Cascade Middle School I provide staff and students with positive behavior strategies to use at school and at home while also promoting a school culture where everyone feels successful.
Through the implementation of proven classroom management techniques, supportive recognition programs and a progressive discipline model that strengthens relationships and academic possibilities, PBSES at PCMS focuses on the success of the whole-child.
What is the Role of the Coach? The PBSES Coach trains, coaches, and consults with teachers and staff to recommend appropriate classroom interventions for students with behavior concerns, provides crisis intervention, and provides tools for adults to interact appropriately with social-emotional challenges.
