We named our company School Life, because we care about the life of your school. We're a family business, that for over 20 years has remained true to our mission, which is to incentivize positive behavior and educational growth.
Our parents were Principals and School Administrators, our aunts are School Teachers and Librarians. Public schools and student achievement have meant a lot to our family for a very long time. It is our goal to ensure, especially in difficult economic times, that ALL students are being rewarded and recognized for positive behavior. It’s nice to share the same vision with you and the PBIS community.
PBIS ( Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support ) is funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs. The goals and purpose of PBIS is to improve social, emotional and academic outcomes for all students, including those students that are disabled or underrepresented.
It is no secret that each school and/or community has it's own climate and unique culture, that is why it is difficult to put a "one size fits all" template in place for targeting desired behaviors. The most effective behavioral interventions are those that are cultivated by the educators of the community and tailored to their specific and unique culture. One thing we have learned over the last 20 years is that Brag Tags® work to motivate, inspire and award positive behavior in a wide spectrum of school climates, from lower socioeconomic Public Schools, to Special Education Schools to Magnet and Charter Schools and more. Check out how our many school customers agree.
Brag Tags® are not only a classroom management tool, they promote positive behavior in non classroom settings such as playgrounds, buses, routes to and from school, even at home. Wouldn’t it be nice if appropriate behavior was the norm for your school and community? Teaching behavioral expectations and rewarding students for following those expectations is a much more positive approach than waiting for misbehavior to occur then responding with punishment. The purpose of schoolwide PBIS is to establish a climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm. Rewarding students with our PBIS Brag Tags® is an economical, fun, and easy way to promote a desired behavior. Soon behaviors such as being safe, being responsible and being respectful will be the norm in your school! Brag Tags® are effective and work.
Together we can prevent bullying, and ensure that all kids go to school each day without fear of being physically or emotionally hurt or socially targeted. PBIS aims to improve school climate and student behavior across a range of outcomes like discipline and academics. Our PBIS Brag Tags® motivate and inspire positive outcomes.
"A recent EdSource survey showed that PBIS was by far the most popular behavior management system in place in California school districts". The goal is not just to correct bad behavior but to create a positive school environment where all students - among them special ed students, English learners, students impacted by trauma, as well as high achievers - develop the social, emotional and academic skills to learn and thrive.
With the support of PBIS and the power of Brag Tags®, we can improve social, emotional, and academic outcomes for ALL students. Our youth and our future are worth our time. Let's be relentlessly positive together. Let's make a difference.
