What is PBIS?
PBIS – Positive Behavior Interventions and Support – is a school-wide approach to discipline which aims to create a safer and more effective learning environment. PBIS focuses on improving a school’s ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students. With PBIS, instructional time in the classroom is more effectively used, the overall school environment is calm, and the school climate promotes learning for your child.
Our teachers use a variety of age-appropriate classroom behavior systems to encourage positive behavior and choices. Positive behavior is reinforced through a variety of rewards. Students are recognized for both short-term and long-term behavior achievements. Behavior expectations are addressed and modeled often to encourage student success.
When needed, students are corrected with varying degrees of consequences. A list of interventions/consequences can be found in our Parent-Student Handbook.
It is our wish that through modeling, positive reinforcement, support, and intervention, behavior violations will decrease. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any specific questions about the classroom behavior policy.
