Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports is a school wide system that promotes positive student behavior patterns.


   Behavior Management

Effective 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.
