• The Positive Behavior Intervention Support Framework (PBIS)

    PBIS is an evidence-based approach to the development of a positive school culture that is built on the premise that behavioral expectations must be positively stated, clearly defined, taught directly, and systematically reinforced. The PBIS framework supports students by explicitly teaching them expected behaviors and then provides reinforcement for these behaviors when they occur. Our schools have been implementing the PBIS framework for some time now and have been awarded state-wide recognition for our success. We have adapted the PBIS framework for use in our virtual learning environment. Each school’s core values will be defined into specific behavioral expectations for virtual learning and explicitly taught to students. Teachers will reinforce these behaviors and families are encouraged to acknowledge these behaviors as well.

    Behavior expectations are supported at your student’s school. Click these links for the Virtual Learning chart for your school.
