PBIS is a process for creating safer and more effective schools. It is a systems approach to enhancing the capacity of schools to educate all children by developing research-based, school-wide, and classroom behavior support systems. The process focuses on improving the school’s ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students. Rather than a prescribed program, PBIS provides systems for schools to design, implement, and evaluate effective school-wide, classroom, non-classroom, and student specific plans. PBIS includes school-wide procedures and processes intended for all students and all staff in all settings. PBIS is a team-based process for systemic problem solving, planning, and evaluation. It is an approach to creating a safe and productive learning environment where teachers can teach and all students can learn.
- We teach behavioral expectations to all students in all settings on campus & acknowledge appropriate behavior.
- We provide students with positive, immediate, and frequent feedback around the use of expected behavior.
- We collect ongoing behavioral data to use for decision making & to develop support plans for students with chronic problem behaviors.
