Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a framework for directly teaching students school-wide and classroom expectations while recognizing students who are meeting or exceeding expectations.
All teachers participate in PBIS by teaching specific pro-academic and pro-social behaviors as a proactive approach to managing concerns before they occur.
Common language and shared expectations help make PBIS successful. The Oriole Promise--Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Your Best--provides our common language, and our shared expectations for appropriate behavior in the school building and while attending school functions.
PBIS is not a program, but a philosophy. We believe students want to meet our expectations but do not always know how. Students are directly taught expected behaviors at the beginning of the school year and participate in "booster" lessons throughout the year.
Parents can encourage and recognize respectful and responsible behavior and encourage their students to be their best at home by providing positive and constructive feedback.
Parents of 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th grade students can discuss success habits scores with students and encourage growth in accountability, productivity, communication, and interpersonal awareness, all of which are closely tied to respectful, responsible, and their best behavior.
