PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports).

What is Positive Behavior Intervention and Support?

PBIS a proactive way we make school more positive, predictable and safe for all our students. 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

Why is PBIS Needed Here?

Office Referral Data

Our student discipline data shows that some students are being sent to the office for disruption and disrespect. When that happens, they are not learning and it can interfere with the learning of others. We need to help all or student to be successful academically and behaviorally to learn our ROAR Expectations.

When students struggle with reading – we teach. When students struggle with math or music – we teach. When students struggle with behavior – we need to teach them how to succeed.
