PAWS/PBIS/Single School Culture

PBIS is Positive Behavior Intervention and Support

Positive Behavior Intervention Support is a collaborative (team-based), educative, proactive and functional process to developing effective interventions for problem behavior. The positive refers to a change of focus from reactive, constantly pointing out what students did wrong (negatives), to proactive teaching and recognizing what children are doing right (positives). PBIS views appropriate consequences as those that are effective in changing the student’s inappropriate behavior. PBIS acknowledges and rewards students for following school-wide expectations and rules. Appropriate behavior is acknowledged after the fact. The rewards are earned, not offered as payoff in exchange for good behavior.
