In 2006, School District 45 adopted PBIS and began training staff. “Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive systems approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.” (www.pbisillinois.org)
The expectations for a school implementing PBIS are based on a few main ideas:
1.Students need to understand what is expected of them.
2.Students need to be taught directly the correct way to behave.
3.Students are positively reinforced for following school wide expectations.
4.Behavioral interventions and decision making are based on data.
