At East Bakersfield High School, we believe that everyone who is a part of our past and present defines our
future as the BLADE FAMILY. Being a part of the Blade FAMILY means that students and staff choose
to take responsibility for their actions and commit to making our FAMILY the best it can be.
By being a part of the Blade FAMILY, we are committing to:
Developing and maintaining positive relationships
Defining and teaching our Blade FAMILY expectations
Celebrating when our expectations are met or exceeded
EBHS began the journey of PBIS in the 2015-2016 school year, but the importance of our student success has always been at the forefront of how we do business.
At EBHS, we have an active Blade FAMILY Culture Club whose purpose is to continuously examine our Tier I supports (academic and behavior supports for ALL students); our Tier II and III team is working to formalize our Tier II strategies (academic and behavioral supports for students who need additional assistance beyond Tier I structures). EBHS is evaluated each year using the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI), or the standardized guideline of how a school can improve their Tier I-III supports. Because of COVID, our internal evaluation mechanism (Implementation Guidance Assessment, or IGA) changed, so we did not receive scores in the 2019-2020 & 2020-2021 school years. Despite challenges we’ve faced due to the COVID pandemic,however, we continue to see growth in the various areas of the inventory and will continue to use these scores to help us determine what areas we can improve our Tier I, II, and III supports
A fundamental part of the Blade FAMILY is recognizing students and staff who embody our six characteristics. This recognition can be as simple as telling a person “Good job!” or “Thanks for what you do!” However, we do have more formal methods of recognizing our staff and students:
