What is PBIS?


      A multi-tiered framework to establish a positive climate and culture through social, emotional, and behavior supports needed to improve academic outcomes for all students.

      PBIS is a set of strategies and systems that enables our school to:

      • create a culture of positive behaviors
      • reduce behavior disruptions
      • provide a safe learning environment to educate all students

      This approach fosters successful social behavior and encourages school staff, students, families, and community members to collaboratively work together to create and nurture a safe social culture with consistent expectations.


PBIS Strategies

    • PBIS invests in prevention. Some of the strategies include:

      • Proactive intervention—identifying the behaviors expected in all settings (i.e. classrooms, hallways, playgrounds, restrooms, etc.).
      • Active teaching—teachers, students, families, and community members often work collaboratively together to teach, model, and acknowledge appropriate behavior.
      • Ongoing recognition of appropriate behavior—recognition through praise, PBIS tickets, Dojo points, Golden Tickets, Wildcat Recognitions, etc.
      • Clear, consistent consequences— for inappropriate student behavior.
      • Additional support— for students with more significant needs.
      • Collecting and using data— to make decisions.
