Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports

PBIS is a school-wide approach that includes five quality characteristics to enhance school climate:

  • Promote positive behavioral expectations
  • Teach behavior expectations by modeling what is expected.
  • Reinforce positive behaviors with rewards and praise.
  • Implement consistent consequences for inappropriate behaviors.
  • Utilize restorative practices to support repairing harm for victims, building empathy, and reducing recurrence of problems and conflicts.
