Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports PBIS


To be successful, our behavior system needs to be a partnership between home and school. Throughout the school year, the PBIS team will send updates and information about PBIS. We invite your comments, concerns and ideas to make PBIS work at our school.

Please support PBIS at your student’s school by:

Reviewing behavior expectations with your child

Using the three expectations at home:

*Be Respectful
*Be Responsible
*Be Safe

Providing positive reinforcement rewarding good choices with compliments or quality time) at home

Sharing comments with or asking questions of PBIS team members

Together we can achieve more!

What is Positive Behavioral
Intervention & Supports?

PBIS is a set of strategies and systems that enables our school to:

A) create a culture of positive behaviors

B) reduce behavior disruptions

C) create appropriate environments to educate all students

This approach fosters successful social behavior and encourages school staff, students, families and community members to work together to create a safe social culture with consistent expectations.

How does PBIS do this?

PBIS invests in prevention. Some of the strategies include:

Proactive intervention— identifying the behaviors expected in all settings.

Active teaching—teachers, students, families and community members often work together to teach and model appropriate behavior

Ongoing recognition of appropriate behavior - such as tangible rewards or verbal praise

Clear, consistent consequences for inappropriate student behavior

Additional support for students with more significant needs

Collecting and using data to make decisions
