Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS)
What is PBIS?
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a process that focuses on improving a school’s ability to teach expectations and support positive behavior for all students. The three main components of PBIS are:
- teaching appropriate behavior in all settings,
- provide interventions when behavior expectations are not met
- recognizing students when behavior expectations are met.
PBIS is a team based school-wide design for discipline which includes all students and all staff in all settings.
PBIS Core Values?
PBIS has three core values:
- Be Respectful
- Be Responsible
- Be Safe
Students are expected to honor these core values in all school settings including the Classroom, Office, Restrooms, Pick-up/Drop-off Area, Line Up Area, Computer Lab, Hallways/Stairway, Cafeteria/Lunch Benches, Bathrooms, and Playgrounds.
What Makes PBIS different?
The focus of this system is acknowledging and rewarding students for consistent positive behavior. The Buzz Buck serves as a positive behavior recognition to encourage our students to consistently demonstrate PBIS’s core values. Earned Bear Bucks may be redeemed on the first Friday of the month, for a variety of prize items.
