What is PBIS?
Positive Behaviorial Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a school-wide behavior system that focuses on establishing a climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm. Expectations are taught, modeled, acknowledged, monitored, and then retaught as necessary. At McKendree Elementary, PBIS focuses on all students being respectful, responsible, and ready. Students are expected to SOAR in all settings of the school as evidenced on the school-wide behaviorial matrix.
Mission Statement and Goals
The mission of the McKendree Elementary PBIS Team is to explicitly teach expected student behaviors, re-teaching when necessary, and consistently recognize positive behavior throughout the school.
