What is Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support (PBIS)?
Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) is a systems approach to enhancing the capacity of schools to support and educate ALL STUDENTS. It is a proactive approach to school-wide discipline that is based on three levels of prevention/intervention to address the needs of all students. PBIS is not a curriculum, intervention, or practice, but rather a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.
Our Mission is to provide a positive, safe, healthy, nurturing and respectful environment in which all students have the opportunity to become productive members of society. We will provide this through the:
1. Development of clearly defined and consistent student expectations and accountabilities.
2. Maintenance of an open ended flexible approach through the use of a data driven informational system.
3. Educationally sound methods that foster student character, safety, academic excellence and individual citizenship.
