Positive Behavior System



School-wide Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) is a research-based approach to creating and sustaining positive and effective social emotional learning environments. PBS promotes academic excellence for all students by setting, teaching and reinforcing clear behavior expectations. It includes strategies for preventing problem behavior by changing routines and by teaching new social and communication skills. As a result, schools are safer and teachers spend less time disciplining students and more time teaching.
