Sand Hill-Venable (along with all Buncombe County Schools) embraces a system of behavior management known as PBIS. PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) is a proactive approach to behavior management designed to establish and foster a school culture where all students can achieve social, emotional, and academic success.

At SHV, we have school-wide expectations known as ROAR. The acronym ROAR stands for Responsibility, Outstanding Attitude, Act Safely, and Respect. Students are encouraged to act as example for these attributes in the classroom, the cafeteria, the playground, and all other aspects of their life. Students who display these attributes earn blue beads for individual actions and white beads for classroom actions. All classrooms work toward a goal which involves earning a minimum number of white beads. When they reach their classroom goal, their class earns a whole class reward as well as “puzzle piece” displayed in our front lobby.

If enough classes meet their goals, the school earns a school-wide reward.
