This form provides information on behaviors that are expected in various locations throughout our campus that match our core values.  The principal teaches these behavior expectations and values at Morning Gathering and teachers also actively teach the following in their classrooms as well.

Positive Behavior Intervention Supports

PBIS Goals

The primary focus of PBIS is to switch the primary focus from providing attention to those demonstrating negative behaviors to reinforcing and giving attention to those demonstrating positive behaviors.  By actively rewarding in positive behaviors, more positive behaviors will be generated by all.

 

In order to reward positive behaviors, children must first know what positive behaviors look like so that they can engage in those positive behaviors.  Schools implementing PBIS identify Core Values that every child is taught to achieve.  Next, schools actively teach how the Core Values look like in terms of behavior in various locations throughout the school such as in the classroom, on the playgrounds, at the lunch tables, in the hallways, etc.  Finally, schools implementing PBIS have reward ceremonies for those children who engage in positive behaviors that support the school's Core Values.
