Calvin Hunsinger School is a K-12 center that serves Exceptional Education Students who have sensory, emotional, or behavioral challenges. The primary method of assisting students at Calvin Hunsinger School with behavior change is the Positive Behavior Support Program (PBS). Positive refers to a change of focus from reactive to proactive teaching and recognizing what children are doing right.
It is an overall shift in the school climate to a learning environment where students and staff feel appreciated, safe, and respected; it is a collaborative, proactive, and educative approach. Character education and Trauma Informed Care are included in the PBS model.
