PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports) in action!

What is School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports?   School-wide PBIS is a multi-tiered framework to make schools more effective places. It establishes a social culture and the behavior supports needed to improve social, emotional, behavioral, and academic outcomes for all students.  Our elementary schools highlight aspects of PBIS in their wonderful homemade videos!  Check out RESPONSIBILITY!
