SOAR to Excellence!
Watch a video showing what PBIS looks like in K-12 schools:
Create a system that has total buy-in for faculty, staff, and administration. This will be a program with consistency that will: decrease the amount of negative referrals, increase the amount of positive referrals and have the entire staff on-board.
What is Positive Behavior Intervention and Support?
PBIS is going to be our new way of preventing discipline problems. Our PBIS team is hard at work taking professional development training so that we can create the culture that we want for our school. Throughout this year, the PBIS Team will be asking students, staff, and our community for information and feedback. We want your input!
- One of the foremost advances in school-wide discipline is the emphasis on school-wide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments.
- Instead of using a piecemeal approach of individual behavioral management plans, a continuum of positive behavior support for all students within a school is implemented in areas including the classroom and nonclassroom settings (such as hallways, buses, and restrooms).
- Attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary (school-wide), secondary (classroom), and tertiary (individual) systems of support that improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, work, recreation) for all children and youth by making targeted behaviors less effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional. -PBIS.org
