PBIS

Bassett Hounds have partnered with Region 19 to incorporate PBIS, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. The goal of PBIS is to enhance the capacity of schools to educate all students, especially students with challenging behaviors, by adopting a sustained, positive, preventative, and effective instructional approach to school-wide discipline and behavior management. This approach focuses on teaching and encouraging positive school-wide behavioral expectations and increasing school capacity to support sustained use of empirically validated practices. 

What Is TBSI - Texas Behavior Support Initiative?

The Texas Behavior Support Initiative (TBSI) is designed to build capacity in Texas schools for the provision of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to all students. The TBSI training modules assist campus teams in developing and implementing a wide range of behavior strategies and prevention-based interventions. These skills have helped educators establish school-wide, classroom, and individual student-level systems of support.

Bassett Middle School Fight Song

(Sung to: Norte Dame Fight Song Tune)

Bassett is brave and Bassett is Bold

Bassett’s the team that no team can hold.

When we fight we fight to win,

‘cause Bassett you know just won’t give in.

When the last play is run through with ease,

Just for the fans of Bassett to please.

We will sing with all our might

The song of maroon and white:

“Fight! Fight! Fight!”

(Bassett’s colors use to be maroon and white)
