Positive Behavior Intervention Support
Our goal in implementing Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) is to encourage children to consistently make good behavioral choices.
- increased time for instruction
- an increase in positive behaviors school-wide
- a decrease in disruptive behaviors.
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
Parents Can Help By:
- Reinforcing and discussing the Behavioral Expectations Matrix with your child on a regular basis
- Requiring your child to speak respectfully and follow the school rules
- Reviewing positive behavior responses with your child
- Supporting staff and administrative behavior decisions
- Volunteering to help with the school PBIS celebrations and recognition events
