What is School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports?
PBIS is a systemic approach to proactive, school-wide behavior based on a Response to Intervention (RTI) model. PBIS applies evidence-based programs, practices and strategies for all students to increase academic performance, improve safety, decrease problem behavior, and establish a positive school culture.
What does PBIS look like in our school?
• School-wide expectations, rules, and procedures established and modeled in all settings to teach students appropriate behavior.
• Classroom processes and procedures that reflect school-wide expectations for student behavior coupled with pre-planned strategies applied within classrooms.
• Reward systems in place to encourage and model appropriate behavior, and effective consequences to discourage inappropriate behavior.
• Recognition assemblies to reward appropriate behavior and learning gains.
• Use of data from referrals and minor infractions to target problem behavior and evaluate effectiveness of our strategies.
* Most importantly, we will implement this system with integrity and fidelity to maximize academic engagement and achievement for all students.
Here are some ideas of things you can do at home with your child:
• Talk to your child about their day.
• Keep communication between you and the teacher active throughout the school year.
• Focus on and encourage the positive choices your child is making.
