DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - A different kind of pep rally was held at Sherwood Acres Elementary school on Friday. It was all part of a behavioral program the school is launching.
Some schools in the Dougherty County School System began positive behavioral intervention and support last year.
It's designed to improve student behavior and decrease the number of office referrals.
Students at Sherwood Acres had been learning about their expectations since the first day of school.
Administrators tried to get children even more excited about the new program.
"We are looking for positive things with PBIS. We have had two weeks of lessons and now we just want to see it put into motion and our kids get rewarded for positive behavior," said Veronica Reese, Sherwood Acres PBIS Coach.
Part of the day's reward was the pep rally.
PBIS is now implemented in 17 schools around Dougherty County.
