Guam - Positive Behavior Intervention & Support (PBIS) is a method of behavior management now being employed at all DOE elementary and middle schools. A training session by national expert Scott Ross was held Friday for school staff, parents, and students from participating schools.

DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez said, "Instead of punishment for things that kids do wrong, provide positive incentives when they do the right things, so recognizing proper behavior, rewarding it 101 and encouraging the kids amongst themselves to be role models."

Fernandez says he is making a concerted effort to expand the program to Guam's high schools by next year, especially in light of fighting incidents that plagued the school system earlier this year.
