What is PBIS?

PBIS is the school wide behavior system that we have started in the elementary and middle school at Black River. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. The philosophy of this program is that by reinforcing students for positive behavior through tickets, positive praise,

and rewards, students will begin to build intrinsic motivation to behave in a positive way which will help create a positive learning environment in all areas of the school. In turn this will allow for more teaching time in the classroom. Through the PBIS program, Black River has developed a common language for behavior expectations in each area of the school. Each child is familiar with the term, We Are B.R. There are 4 behavior expectations that students are learning about:

· Be Respectful

· Be Responsible

· Be Resourceful

· Be Ready
