The TOPS program at Riverview is a school-wide approach to discipline often referred to as PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports). This approach is based on establishing school-wide
expectations and process to create a safe and more effective school environment. The process focuses on improving Riverview's ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students. Teachers are
able to teach in an environment conducive to teaching and students are able to learn in an environment that is comfortable and safe.
At Riverview, our school-wide expectations are:
Be Safe, Be Responsible and Be Respectful
(please see the attached TOPS rubric).
Students that display TOPS behaviors are recognized by receiving TOPS postcards thanking them for their positive behavior. These postcards are placed
into the TOPS can in each classroom. In grades 4K-3, students receiving postcards are given a special prize. In all grades, all postcards are collected for a monthly drawing. Five students from each grade grouping (4K-2; 3-5; 6-8) win the "big draw" prize (donuts and juice, pizza, etc..). After the drawing, all postcards are returned to the students and either displayed in the classrooms or hallways, or taken home. This program aims to prevent inappropriate
behavior through teaching and reinforcing appropriate behaviors.
