Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) developed as a multi-tiered framework to teach positive social and cognitive behaviors. PBIS provides strategies for students to engage in the classroom by setting behavioral expectations, positive rewards, and clear consequences. These practices are supported by the physical school environment, effective classroom routines, and behavioral expectations.
When implemented correctly, PBIS promotes a more positive school climate, safer learning environments, and more trusting and respectful student-teacher relationships.
Classworks Observations are an excellent resource when looking for a consistent, easy-to-use, and transparent platform for the daily observations that are so integral to PBIS.
