PBIS

Positive Behavioral Intervention Systems (PBIS) in schools is a broad range of systematic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes; while preventing problem behavior.  One of the great components of PBIS is the concept “goodness of fit”, meaning PBIS is constructed around what fits our school. “Behavior support is the redesign of environments, not the redesign of individuals.”

 

PBIS is:

  •     Not a specific practice or curriculum…it’s a general approach to preventing problem behavior
  •     Not limited to any particular group of student’s…it’s for all students
  •        Not new…It’s based on a long history of behavioral practices and effective instructional design and strategies.

 

Some of the universal strategies PBS defines are:

 

  •    Statement of purpose
  •    Clearly defined expected behaviors (no more than 5 rules)
  •    Procedures for teaching and practicing expected behaviors
  •    Procedures for discouraging problem behaviors/Procedures for record-keeping and decision making
  •    Family/Community Awareness and involvement

 

We have defined Lovell Elementary statement of purpose as: “The purpose of Positive Behavioral Support Systems is to establish consistent and individualized plans for achieving important social and learning outcomes, while preventing problem behavior at Lovell Elementary.” 

 

We have also defined our expectations as follows:

      I AM – “Responsible”

       “Respectful”

       “Ready to Learn”

   “Therefore I AM Safe”
