Positive Behavior Support


Our mission is to promote the recognition of positive behaviors that aligns with the school-wide expectations in order to create a positive learning environment encouraging students, teachers, and staff to exhibit school and community pride.


Positive Behavior Support is a proactive, educative process used in school to address discipline issues. In a school setting, it can not be assumed that all students know the appropriate behaviors to engage in. Students come from different cultures and backgrounds that may view behaviors in unique ways. When a child misbehaves, the school views it as a skill deficit. Therefore, students are taught appropriate school behaviors and expectations. Students are rewarded when they display the expected behaviors.




  • Decrease the number of discipline referrals while increasing student behavior expectations
  • Decrease amount of instruction time lost to behavior issues
  • Increase academic engagement in the classroom
  • Increase the likelihood that teachers and students will develop more meaningful, positive relationships
  • Present a positive image to our community

Parents and guardians play a crucial role in the development of a child's behavior. Here are some suggestions you can use at home to help your child understand Positive Behavior Support.

  • Be a good role model. Children often imitate behaviors seen at home.
  • Talk to your child about their school day.
  • Focus on the positive choices your child is making.
  • Encourage them to dream big and do their best.
  • Volunteer to chaperone/lend a hand at PBS reward activities.
