Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. Does your child bring home positive notes from school (such as Puma Paws)? This is part of the PBIS initiative going on in our schools

As a parent, you can be part of the formula for school success by using the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) strategy at home and making a PBIS home plan. When you teach your child the same behaviors that are taught at school and reinforce them at home, you are encouraging your child’s social and academic growth.

You can begin by:

  • Comparing your home rules and expectations with the school’s core expectations for behaviors.
  • Deciding how you can apply the use of those appropriate behaviors in your home and the community.
  • Identifying a way to set up predictable routines at home
  • Modeling the behavior you want to see and reinforcing it consistently.
