Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School is located at 7530 Court Street Elizabethtown, NY. This public school provides education for grades K through 12 for the community of Elizabethtown. Elizabethtown-Lewis approaches teaching with PBIS. PBIS is a team based systematic approach in teaching behavioral expectations throughout the school. It is based on a proactive model, which teaches the behaviors, reinforces and recognizes students who are able to model these behaviors, and has systems in place to support students who have a difficult time or may present more challenging behaviors. The team approach is what truly makes this system work.
With this program, behavioral expectations are defined and taught. The three basic behaviors are Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible. Once the appropriate behaviors are taught, they are acknowledged in various ways on a regular basis. Some reinforcements include sticker charts, positive notes home, certificates, books, etc. At ELCS, they have three PBIS Recognition Weeks throughout the school year. Students are recognized as Peak Achievers and Peak Performers. During the recognition week there will be an assembly and activity day. At the end of the year the Peak Performers go on a trip. In the past students have gone to The Wild Center in Tupper Lake and bowling in Lake Placid.
