Making A Difference at CHS
PBIS is short for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support which is implemented in elementary, middle and secondary schools throughout the United States.  It is based on principles of applied behavior analysis and prevention approach and values of positive behavior support.  PBIS supports the success of all students.

Chesapeake High School is now in its third year of implementation of this program. It is a school wide initiative that is designed to improve the overall academics and behavior of the school environment; therefore improving the success of all students.  The purpose of our program is to promote positive success within the school environment and to acknowledge students who do well both academically and behaviorally.  Over the past two years we have seen a significant decrease in student referrals for misbehavior and an increase in academic achievement/grades.

Our theme is What do Cougars do? R.O.A.R.  The acronym ROAR stands for Ready, Optimistic, Accountable, Respectful.  These are our target behaviors for success.  We expect our students and staff to exhibit these in the classroom, hallways, cafeteria and wherever they are in the building.  An important part of the program is to acknowledge students who demonstrate the targeted behaviors (ROAR) on a daily basis.  They will be eligible for incentives that include prizes or participate in special events.  More information about incentives will be forthcoming.
