Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) is our approach to encouraging good behavior from all students in a positive rather than punitive manner. We teach our students what is expected of them and to use appropriate behavior throughout the school day. 

The PBIS theory revolves around having a predictable routine, an effectively designed classroom, and positive daily expectations. Our teachers create these positive models by allowing students varied opportunities to respond while using prompts, supervision, and acknowledging good behavior with praise. 

Some of our strategies to implement this program include structured recess times, morning greetings with our staff, and classroom circle time to encourage communication. These strategies help build positive relationships between students and staff as well as encourage emotional learning.
