PBIS Mission Statement:
The mission of PBIS at Parkwood is to teach students the positive behaviors of respect, responsibility, safety, and kindness in order to create a supportive learning community that gives all students a common language and set of expectations that are equitable to all students.
What is PBIS?
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an approach to supporting students to be successful in schools. PBIS was developed from research in the fields of behavior theory and effective instruction. PBIS supports all students through intervention, ranging from a school-wide system to a system for developing individualized plans for specific students. School-wide PBIS focuses on the development and implementation of proactive procedures and practices to prevent problem behavior for all students and to improve school climate. Research shows that students achieve at a higher level when they know the behavior expectations and feel safe.
The success of our PBIS program not only relies on the participation of all staff and students, but also the participation of families. Research shows that school behavior plans that are followed in the home greatly improve their effectiveness in the school.
