What is PBIS?
PBIS is our school-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports program. Our goal is to provide proactive strategies for teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create a positive school environment. A range of positive behavior supports for all students is implemented in the classroom and non-classroom settings. PBIS is a team-based approach to teaching expectations and preventing problem behaviors. It also teaches and encourages respectful and responsible behavior to all students. Our goal is to create a safe and effective learning environment by reducing discipline issues and increasing instruction time. PBIS is meant for all students and all staff. School-wide PBIS provides a positive focus to encourage desirable student behaviors. A set of universal expectations for behavior, positively stated, are established for all students in all locations of our school. At WCMS, those core values are: WCMS Core Expectations – Be Repectful, Be Responsible and Be Engaged. Our expectations matrix identifies various school locations and then determines what each of the core values looks like in that setting. The specific expectations are described in a concise and positive manner. By developing a matrix of universal positive behavior expectations, the school is establishing a common language for staff and students. School-wide PBIS is a visual approach. Interventions and strategies are implemented to teach and reinforce these behaviors.
