Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based, data-driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents, increase a school’s sense of safety and support improved academic outcomes. More than 22,000 U.S. schools are implementing PBIS and saving countless instructional hours otherwise lost to discipline. The premise of PBIS is that continual teaching, combined with acknowledgement or feedback of positive student behavior will reduce unnecessary discipline and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety and learning. PBIS schools apply a multi-tiered approach to prevention, using disciplinary data and principles of behavior analysis to develop school-wide, targeted and individualized interventions and supports to improve school climate for all students. (OSEP Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports, 2009).

You will hear a great deal about PBIS at Jasper County Primary School. Students are rewarded and acknowledged for their awesome behavior. Little Canes are… Respectful, Responsible, and Safe throughout the school. In all areas of the school, students will follow expectations that show they are Respectful, Responsible and Safe! Common expectations will be displayed in classrooms, hallways, bathrooms, cafeteria, and playgrounds. We are excited to share our PBIS expectations with you!
