Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an approach to addressing student behavior. It provides an infrastructure for school communities to establish socio-emotional intelligence in their students. PBIS is proactive, addressing the root causes of issues before they develop into problems for students.
PBIS puts the spotlight on positive school culture by rewarding students for doing the right things, while clearly setting expectations for what creates a welcoming and supportive culture at school.
Schools that implement PBIS incorporate social, emotional, and behavioral skills into the school culture, so students learn these skills just like reading, math, or history.
It is crucial to create behavioral expectations that are clear and concise, so that a kindergartener as well as an 8th grader can easily understand. Schools should pick three to five expectations for behavior, and develop an expectation matrix so students can see what that looks like in all aspects of their school environment. While each school can pick their own behavioral expectations, many have chosen Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe. For schools that are looking for their own matrix, Box Out Bullying will help create one for you!
