We would like to provide you with an overview of PBIS – Positive Behavior Interventions & Support – and what it looks like in our building. We hope that this will be an “at-a-glance” resource to familiarize you with the behavior expectations at Cedar Ridge Elementary.
The premise of PBIS is to create a safe, effective, and positive learning environment for every student, and to do so by explicitly teaching behavioral expectations. PBIS creates teaching and learning environments that are…
Less reactive and harmful
More proactive, preventive, and productive
Address classroom management and disciplinary issues
Improve supports for students whose behaviors require more specialized assistance
Maximize academic engagement and achievement for all students
PBIS is divided into three tiers. Tier 1 is the universal tier with behavioral expectations and interventions that are provided to all students. Tier 2 includes targeted interventions for students who are struggling to follow the behavior expectations independently and need additional support and attention in order to do so. Tier 3 represents a small group of students who will need intensive interventions and a specific individualized plan in order to be successful in following the school expectations.
Thank you for your support of the PBIS program at Cedar Ridge Elementary!
