What is PBIS?

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based, data-driven framework designed to create positive learning environments that support improved academic, behavioral, and social outcomes for all students. PBIS is a preventative and proactive framework proven to improve school climate by promoting positive relationships between school personnel, students, families, and other stakeholders. The premise of PBIS is that continual teaching, combined with acknowledgment or feedback in response to student behavior, will increase appropriate behavior and promote a climate of greater productivity, and learning.

Here is a matrix that shows students how to behave throughout the school:  PBIS matrix

PBIS at Clarkdale Elementary

Our mission is to create a positive learning culture that is conducive to teaching and learning every day. Our school-wide PBIS expectations, Respectful, Responsible, Role Model (R3), are modeled and taught daily.  In addition, visual reminders are posted throughout the school that reflect our R3 expectations. Students earn PBIS reward points for exemplifying R3 expectations; PBIS reward points are redeemed for various incentives throughout the school year.
