What is PBIS?

The Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports program is based upon a philosophy of recognizing positive contributions of students. Our goal is to help each child develop self discipline.

The home and school share the responsibility for developing good citizens. Parents, teachers and students must work together to maintain a safe learning environment.

As a part of PBIS, teachers, administrators, counselors, and support staff will have the responsibility to teach positive behavior expectations to students. PBIS means students will know exactly what is expected of them. Students who take responsibility to behave positively will be recognized and rewarded in a variety of ways.

PBIS means students will know exactly what is  expected  of  them.  Students  who  take  responsibility  to behave  positively  will  be  recognized  and  rewarded  in  a  variety  of  ways. Students  will  also  know the consequences that  will  result  when  they  choose  NOT  to meet the school-wide expectations.
