What is PBIS?
PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) is a research-based framework that aids in the reduction of problem behaviors. The key of the program is to focus on prevention. Clear expectations are established and taught to all students. Positive behaviors are recognized and rewarded. Through implementing PBIS, Munsey staff will:
- Clearly define and teach a set of behavioral expectations.
- Consistently acknowledge and reward appropriate behavior.
- Constructively address problem behaviors.
- Collect and use data to regularly evaluate our progress.
Munsey SWPBIS Committee evaluates, discusses, and implements strategies, practices, policies, and behaviors to ensure a caring and safe learning environment.
