POSITIVE BEHAVIOR SUPPORTS (PBS)

 

School wide positive behavior supports include establishing clear school wide expectations, comprehensive instruction and a system for providing consistent encouragement and correction.

Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) is a school-wide approach to discipline with an emphasis on support that includes proactive strategies for defining teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments. PBS is a process that targets behaviors that are less effective to the learning environment and increases instructional time by minimizing disruptive behaviors. It is a research validated process implemented in all areas including the classroom, hallways, playground, cafeteria, buses and restrooms. A matrix is developed by each school that outlines the expectations in all settings.
