Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

PBIS is a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.


PBIS IS NOT a packaged curriculum, scripted intervention, or manualized strategy.  PBIS IS a prevention-oriented way for school personnel to (a) organize evidence-based practices, (b) improve their implementation of those practices, and (c) maximize academic and social behavior outcomes for students.  PBIS supports the success of ALL students

Behavioral Expectations

Be Respectful

  Be Responsible 

Be Safe

Be Productive (Middle and High School)

HOW DO STUDENTS LEARN ABOUT PBIS?

Each school develops, displays and teaches ALL students the expectations for behaviors.  School-wide expectations as well as classroom expectations are taught through the use of a Teach-To.  Visuals of the expectations are displayed throughout the building. 

HOW IS POSITIVE BEHAVIOR REWARDED?

Each building has developed a structured system for rewarding positive behaviors.  Rewards are immediate (ticket or token), unpredictable (classroom drawing, building-wide drawing), and celebratory (based on meeting a school-wide expectation).  See your schools PBIS website for specific information on your students school.

WHO IMPLEMENTS PBIS?

ALL CFAUSD staff is responsible for implementing PBIS.  Each building has a PBIS team consisting of individuals trained in PBIS implementation.
