Provide a collaborative, assessment-based approach to developing effective interventions for problem behavior
Emphasize the use of preventative teaching and reinforcement-based strategies to achieve meaningful and durable behavior and lifestyle outcomes Popular Myths Regarding PBS "The 'positive' in Positive Behavior Support means we give out rewards." The 'positive' refers to a change in focus from pointing out what students did WRONG, to proactive teaching and recognizing what children are doing RIGHT. "We will no longer punish children for inappropriate behavior." PBS doesn't ignore inappropriate behavior. Consequences should be effective in changing the student's inappropriate behavior. Schools plan for inappropriate behavior by matching the level of consequences to the severity of the problem behaviors. CONSISTENCY is maintained across campus. "PBS uses bribes to get children to behave." Using a reward system is not the same as bribing a student. PBS acknowledges and rewards students for following school-wide expectations and rules. Rewards are earned, not offered as payoff. From Federal Law: H.R. 4274, Sec. 9 So we have to learn ANOTHER new program????? NO! PBS isn't a program, but a 3-5 year process.
It builds upon systems already in place by incorporating school-wide expectations that are linked to positively stated rules.
PBS gets everyone speaking the same "language" in order to maintain consistency across campus. What are school-wide expectations? Positively-worded broad statements that apply to everyone in all settings
