What is PBIS?
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an approach to teaching and supporting positive behaviors and meeting the needs of ALL students. This school-wide approach to discipline focuses on building a safe and positive environment in which all students can learn.
The foundation of PBIS at R. L. Norton Elementary School is comprised of our three core values (the 3Rs):
- Be Respectful
- Be Responsible
- Be Ready
The three major components of PBIS are:
- Teaching appropriate behavior in all settings.
- Interventions when behavior expectations are not met.
- Recognition when behaviors are met.
