PBIS

silver level

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive systems approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.

As a Response to Intervention model, PBIS applies a three-tiered system of support, and a problem-solving process to enhance the capacity of schools to effectively educate all students.

PBIS is NOT a curriculum, intervention, or practice, but IS a decision making framework that guides selection, integration, and implementation of the best evidence-based academic and behavioral practices for improving important academic and behavior outcomes for all students.

Schools that establish systems with the capacity to implement PBIS with integrity and durability have teaching and learning environments that are

Less reactive, aversive, dangerous, and exclusionary, and

More engaging, responsive, preventive, and productive

Address classroom management and disciplinary issues (e.g., attendance, tardies, antisocial behavior),

Improve supports for students whose behaviors require more specialized assistance (e.g., emotional and behavioral disorders, mental health), and

Most importantly, maximize academic engagement and achievement for all students.

PBIS schools organize their evidence-based behavioral practices and systems into an integrated collection or continuum in which students experience supports based on their behavioral responsiveness to intervention. A three-tiered prevention logic requires that all students receive supports at the universal or primary tier. If the behavior of some students is not responsive, more intensive behavioral supports are provided, in the form of Check In Check Out, a group or mentoring (tier 2), or a highly individualized plan such as a behavior intervention plan (BIP) or RENEW/wraparound (tier 3).

At Juarez, we have four values, or expectations, that we want all students and staff to achieve:

Respect Learning

Respect Yourself

Respect Others

Respect Property

Within each of theses values are more specific behaviors that we want to see from our students. These are outlined on our school-wide PBIS behavior matrix.
