PBIS stands for
Positive Behavioral
Interventions and Supports.
What is PBIS?
in PBIS means we give out rewards.”

Let's BUST some MYTHS!!
PBIS Myth #1
"You did a great job on your last test,
I am so proud of you for studying!"

"I am so happy you stayed focused
and continued to work hard today."

"I am very proud of the way you chose to
work out your disagreement with your partner."
Remember to give students positive feedback when giving out Tiger Stickers.

PBIS is an approach using a

to create proactive systems to prevent problems…

The program is designed to create environments that are
engaging, responsive and productive
rather than reactive, adverse or dangerous.
It helps address classroom management and disciplinary issues.
PBIS uses school-wide data
predict problems
make informed decisions to
encourage positive behavior within the school

"I am not going to reward a student for doing the things they should already be doing."

We must remember that acceptable behaviors need to be taught and reinforced daily.
The PBIS committee is committed to putting in place the interventions and supports that students need to be successful.

Each month we will look at data and identify students and areas that need support.

We will put more adults in hotspot areas around the school.

We will still put in place interventions with "Red Zone students" like our Check-in / Check-out program
Behavior Plans

While the process is data driven,
teacher input is also important.

We look for your feedback and concerns
to help make decisions about
strategies and interventions.
Most importantly, PBIS maximizes academic engagement and achievement for

PBIS Myth #2

ignore inappropriate behavior.

PBIS views appropriate consequences as those that are
in changing the student’s unacceptable behavior.

When you award the Tiger sticker to a student, tell the student exactly what behavior you observed that earned the sticker.

Remember – you can and should give stickers to any student, not just those in your class.
Anywhere you see a student following the matrix. Teachers should carry stickers with them at all times.


Tiger stickers should be given immediately to students when a behavior in the Expectations Matrix is observed.
