Our school has adopted PBIS to encourage positive decision-making and responsible behavior.  The key purposes of PBIS include:

  • Development of a continuum of scientifically based behavior and academic interventions and supports
  • Use of data to make decisions and solve problems
  • Arrangement of the environment to prevent the development and occurrence of problem behavior
  • Instruction and encouragement of pro-social skills and behaviors
  • Implementation of evidence-based behavioral practices with fidelity and accountability
  • Continuous universal screening and monitoring of student performance & progress continuously

The outcomes of PBIS include:

  • 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

Students are expected to follow three rules on campus: Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible.
