PBIS is a three-tiered system of support. The program offers a broad range of systematic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes, while promoting positive behaviors. We monitor student behavior outcomes using SWIS, Point Cards and observational data sources.
Our goal is to ensure that students are meeting the academic and behavior expectations within the community, home, and school domains. Realizing that no student is the same, the PBIS program provides positive interventions and supports at tiered levels.
TIER 1 – Universal
Tier 1 practices and systems establish a foundation of regular, proactive support while preventing unwanted behaviors. Schools provide these universal supports to all students, school-wide
TIER 2 – Secondary
Tier 2 practices and systems support students who are at risk for developing more serious problem behaviors before those behaviors start. These supports help students develop the skills they need to benefit from core programs at the school.
TIER 3 – Tertiary
Tier 3 provide students with more intensive, individualized support to improve their behavioral and academic outcomes. At this level, schools rely on formal assessments, family involvement and possibly outside resources to determine a student’s need.
