PBIS pyramidWhat is Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)?


Peterson Student Success Center is a Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) school.  We also support the Multi-tiered Systems and Supports (MTSS) philosophy with the district. We are implementing positive classroom and school-wide supports in a variety of ways to promote student success. Through data, our PBIS team can make decisions that act as a continual way to identify and modify programs that support student achievement.

As Peterson promotes PBIS, our school can effectively teach appropriate behaviors, intervene early, use research-based methods of intervention, monitor student behavior, use data for decision-making, and continue to promote student achievement throughout our school.

PBIS and MTSS are initiatives promoted in CCSD to keep students in school and on the right path toward college and career-readiness.  We have had great success so far with our students and their response to the program. We look forward to the continued growth as our students learn the necessary behaviors and interventions to be productive citizens at our school and in society.

PBIS is a research-based, school-wide systems approach to improve school climate and create safer and more effective schools.  PBIS IS a process.  PBIS IS NOT a program or a curriculum. The process focuses on improving a school’s ability to teach expectations and support positive behavior for all students. PBIS provides systems for schools to design, implement, and evaluate effective school-wide, classroom, non-classroom, and student-specific discipline plans.  PBIS is a team-based process for data review, data-based problem solving and intervention, ongoing planning, and monitoring of interventions. PBIS implementation includes school-wide procedures and processes intended for: ALL students, ALL staff and in ALL settings. This includes individual classrooms and teachers AND non-classroom settings and related staff.  Steps involved in setting up school-wide PBIS after initial training:  Identify school team to guide and direct the process. This team should be made up of an administrator, grade level representatives, student services staff, non-classroom staff and parents.   Establish 3-5 positively stated school-wide behavioral expectations. Establish a way to collect office referral and other data on a regular basis to evaluate the effectiveness of school-wide PBIS efforts.
