PBIS at Duanesburg Elementary School

Elementary staff pose as a group

EagleAt Duanesburg Elementary School, our goal is to create a social culture in our school that will encourage positive behaviors and interactions, while discouraging problem behaviors.

This social culture will lead to a safe environment where students achieve academically and build positive relationships with each other and with adults.

The foundation of the approach emphasizes teaching students the behaviors we expect to see, reminding them to use those behaviors, acknowledging them when they do, and re-teaching when they do not.

Our PBIS team consists of:

  • Mrs. Conover, Principal

  • Mrs. Goodwin, Teacher

  • Mrs. Minute, Teacher

  • Mrs. Benjamin, Teacher

  • Mrs. Loret, Aide

  • Mrs. Fall, Parent
