What is PBIS?
Marion City Schools is committed to collaboratively establishing a safe, respectful and caring environment that promotes student learning. One of the tools that we use is Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support, a preventive, proactive team-based approach to teaching behavioral expectations throughout the school.
PBIS is a school-wide system that focuses on teaching appropriate behavior to all students in the school. Its purpose is to create a positive environment that promotes unity, maximizes learning and makes everyone feel welcome. It establishes a positive school culture so that a school can be an effective learning environment for all students.
PBIS emphasizes prevention of student behavior problems through the use of non-aversive techniques, which should greatly reduce, if not eliminate, the need to use restraint and/or seclusion.
Benefits of PBIS include:
- Reduction in problem behavior
- Increased student engagement
- Improved academic performance
- Improved classroom management
Each school building adapts PBIS to fit its needs.
