Positive Behavioral Intervention & Support (PBIS)

PBIS is an approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.  PBIS is a prevention-oriented way for school personnel to organize evidence-based practices, improve their implementation of those practices and maximize academic and social behavior outcomes for students.  PBIS supports the success of ALL students.
In short, we seek to be preventative rather than punitive.  
Our goal is to reduce our out-of-school suspensions by 10%.  Additionally, we seek to increase the percentage of students scoring proficient on our reading assessments.  
In implementing PBIS, we have committed ourselves to our ROAR commitments...
R for Respect
O for ownership
A for Attitude
R for Responsibility
