Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS)
What is PBIS?
•PBIS is a framework to address school wide, classroom and individual student social, emotional and behavioral concerns. It is not a specific curriculum or intervention
• It includes all students and all school staff members
• PBIS involves adult modeling and explicit teaching of behavioral skills – same way we teach academic skills

What are the benefits for my child?
• Increased instructional time
• Better school climate
• Consistent expectations across all settings and classrooms

What behaviors will be taught and how will students learn these behavioral expectations?
•We have created a fun, easy to remember acronym with each letter representing behavioral expectations that we will teach and reinforce. Our acronym is ROARS: RESPECT, OWNERSHIP, ATTITUDE, RESPONSIBILITY, SAFETY.
• Students will be taught specific behavioral expectations through direct instruction on the above character traits in locations throughout the school (e.g., classroom, lunchroom, bathroom). Students will be expected to demonstrate behavioral expectations in all school settings.
