Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

        Always Safe


Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a framework grounded in the belief that all children can learn positive behaviors. Through this framework, we directly teach students about behavior, just as we would teach about other subjects like reading or math. The focus of PBIS is prevention.


PBIS uses systematic practices to ensure that our students are successful, including teaching behavior expectations, reinforcing students for demonstrating positive behaviors at school, and monitoring and correcting (re-teaching) behavior.


At South Lakewood Elementary, we use Panther Paws to reinforce the positive behaviors of individual students and Class Paws to reinforce whole classes. Panther Paws may be turned in for incentives such as entry into a weekly drawing and special privileges in the classroom.
