What is PBIS?
PBIS is founded on the ideas that behavior can be taught and that all students will do well when they are placed in a setting in which they can thrive. PBIS schools seek to focus on positive behaviors and create a consistent and predictable environment for students. By focusing on positive behaviors and decreasing unnecessary punishments, all students are more likely to view school as a positive setting for learning. Overall, PBIS seeks to increase time students spend in the classroom, decrease time spent on punishment or classroom management, and improve the school environment. This allows students to continue to develop the life and social skills needed for future success both inside and outside the classroom.
