What is PBIS?


Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) is an approach to teaching and supporting positive behaviors and meeting the needs of ALL students. PBIS is a different way of handling discipline. PBIS is proactive, educative, and reinforcement based. The ultimate goal of PBIS is to create a safe and productive environment where educators can teach and all students can learn without disruption. This does not mean that students are no longer punished for inappropriate behaviors. PBIS practices are currently taking place in grades 4-12 throughout the district. As part of the PBIS initiative our schools have defined a set of school-wide expectations and rules for behaviors in all areas of the school which are posted throughout the school. All students will be explicitly taught these behavioral expectations through school developed lesson plans that include examples and non-examples of the specific expectation being addressed.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments please feel free to contact the PBIS team at Charles Spencer.
