Positive Behavior Intervention and Support
During the past seven years, the district and schools have worked diligently to implement a universal multi-tiered system of supports for all students in the district. These supports include clearly defined behavioral expectations, teaching these expectations to students, acknowledging appropriate behavior, and correcting inappropriate behavior; while providing support and interventions for students having difficulty.
Once these systems are in place and fully functioning, school teams should strategically evaluate implementation data to determine which systems, areas, or specific behaviors require additional support and teaching.
For a school-wide system to work effectively, it is important that each staff member as well as school partners understand and support the underlying concepts of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.
