Positive Behaviors Interventions Supports (PBIS)
What is PBIS?
"Research is demonstrating that schools make greater academic gains when they simultaneously build a school-wide positive social-culture. PBIS organizes adults and students to create a social culture in schools that will encourage positive behavior interactions, while discouraging problem behaviors. This social-culture will lead to a safer environment where students achieve academically and build positive relationships with each other and with adults."
Early Childhood Center #61 is implementing the Positive Behavior Interventions Supports Program. Since academic achievement in school is strongly related to student behavior, this program promotes positive behaviors in many ways.
