Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports

What is PBIS?

PBIS is a systems approach for managing behavior using positive strategies.

By reducing behavioral problems through strategies that teach and promote positive behavior in all students, a safe learning environment is maintained.

In this environment teachers can teach and students can learn.

The system is built around three Core Values. A Core Value is a school-wide expectation for behaviors.

"Be Your Blue Bomber Best!"

Elementary News

"At the Elementary School the team is excited about the PBIS system we are currently developing and training our staff to implement next year." 

Middle/High School News

"The staff at the Middle/High School is very excited about the implementation of PBIS.  The PBIS Building Team is hard at work with developing the Behavior Expectation Matrix, a key component in the success of PBIS and look forward to the upcoming 'PBIS Kick-Off' the first week of the new school year in the fall.  As it is important for parents and the community to understand what PBIS is all about, please take the time to check out the PBIS website http://www.pbis.org/  for more information, and more importantly, to read about other school districts who have brought PBIS into their schools with great success."
