What is PBIS

PBIS is Positive Behavior Intervention Support which is to establish a climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm. Introducing, modeling, and reinforcing positive social behavior is what this support system creates and it makes the undesirable behaviors less effective. This allows the classroom and school itself to be more efficient and effective academically.

PBIS expectations are expected behaviors and must be taught. Each teacher will plan to take 5-10 minutes at the beginning of the day to teach these behaviors. Each day the teacher will teach them the expected behavior for a different setting then reinforce that behavior when they are actually in that location.

The desired behaviors for the various areas of the school should be taught to each student and frequently discussed with the students by the faculty. It is important that students learn and understand the expectations of Hadnot-Hayes STEM Elementary. If these expectations are not met, students will conform to the needed consequences.

Students modeling the appropriate behaviors are rewarded. The incentives are very important to the PBIS program. We have identified behaviors within our guide, we must introduce, model, and teach the students and the reward students when they exhibit them.
