What is PBIS?
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports is a school wide system that promotes positive student behavior patterns.
behavior management begins with overt procedures and routines designed
to teach and promote positive expectations, inhibit or discourage rule
violating behavior and create a culture of competence in which
communication and procedures are effective and efficient. A
well-designed behavior management plan focuses on preventing rather than
responding to problem behavior. Critical features of behavior
management include (a) strategies to teach, review, monitor, and
reinforce expectations; (b) a continuum of strategies for responding to
appropriate behaviors; and (c) a continuum of strategies to respond to
inappropriate behaviors. The following section presents a discussion on
each of these features.
