What is PBIS
PBIS is an approach our school uses to improve school climate and promote positive behavior. It also guides the way we respond when students don’t follow the behavior expectations. Our school has three broad behavior expectations, which are taught throughout the year to all students. Students are acknowledged for following the expectations through verbal praise, special events and tangible rewards. Those students who struggle with appropriate behavior are redirected through re-teaching of expectations and other proactive approaches. All strategies used in PBIS are research-based with the ultimate goal being to develop positive, predictable and safe learning environments.
