School-wide Expections

Positive Behavior Support

Butterfield implements a Positive Behavior Support System in which consistency of behavior will be expected throughout all parts of the school community.

Our school-wide expectations are:
Be respectful. Be responsible. Be Safe. Be Productive.  And always, always kind.

Butterfield Bobcats use quiet voices, respect personal space, and are kind with words and actions in all areas of our school.

The Butterfield PBIS program has validated the benefits of directly teaching students our expectations, and acknowledging appropriate behaviors. This has paid off with a significantly reduced number of discipline incidents on our campus. Go Bobcats!
