Our goal in implementing Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) is to encourage children to consistently make good behavioral choices.

What is PBIS?

A research based prevention model designed to increase time for learning, while decreasing disruptive behavior. 


  • Encourages desirable behavior
  • Maintains a positive focus to strengthen social skills
  • Teaches respect, responsibility and safety


  • Provides expectations within each area of the school
  • Uses a framework to teach and reinforce expectations through direct instruction
  • Provides consistent, predictable, and fair use of consequences in a positive manner
  • Staff gathers data to guide implementation and track success of program
