City Schools of Decatur began implementing PBIS in the 2019-2020 School Year. The implementation process includes ongoing training from the Department of Education Technical Assistance Center and Metro RESA. Schools will continue with implementation of PBIS through Virtual Learning and upon returning to in-person learning. School teams developed School Wide themes to guide their work and teach students the positive expectations for conduct and learning at school.

Adverse Childhood Events
Many experts agree our experience with the current pandemic can be classified as an Adverse Childhood Event (ACE). ACEs have the impact of altering children's responses to future experiences. Feelings of uncertainty, fear and anxiety can reduce a person's ability to manage emotional responses. How we recognize and respond to students' emotional responses as demonstrated in their behavior can further reinforce the trauma or help students develop appropriate coping strategies. Our charge is to recognize behaviors that are signals for help and provide supportive strategies to help guide them through the moment.
