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 R.O.A.R.S.:
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.
