Bulldog Positive Behavior Supports

School of Distinction AwardDothan City Schools

Principal, Mr. Jeff Torrence

Superintendent, Dr. Dennis Coe

Jerry Lee Faine’s Bulldog Positive Behavior program was created with the goal of decreasing discipline referrals through the implementation of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. Teachers received training for the PBIS and PAWS system and then decided to create an incentive system called the Bulldog Buck. The PAWS acronym helped students with daily behaviors and expectations: Practice Respect, Act Responsibly, Work Together, and have Safety Always. Bulldog Bucks could be earned at any time students followed the PAWS system. Teachers, custodial staff, and support staff helped drive the success of the Bulldog Supports. The program’s goal was to decrease the extremely high number of discipline referrals by following the PAWS and Positive Behavior Supports to fidelity. In just one year, discipline referrals decreased by 82%, which was the direct result of consistency, structure, and positive relationships. Students saw the value of the positive interventions and were driven to succeed. The Bulldog Store was the monthly culmination of Positive Interventions. There was great joy among staff watching the students “spend” their positive earned Bucks. Students were able to see the benefits of their hard work and the atmosphere at Faine began to grow in positivity and accountability.
