Positive Behavior Intervention and Support

What is PBIS?

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proven research and evidenced-based discipline program that emphasizes school-wide systems of support that include strategies for defining, teaching, modeling, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments. PBIS emphasizes teaching students to behave in ways that contribute to academic achievement and school success and that support a school environment where students and school staff are responsible and respectful.

PBIS recognizes that effective school discipline is anchored to meaningful corrective instruction and guidance that offers students an opportunity to learn from their mistakes and contribute to the school community. PBIS also involves ongoing monitoring of discipline data to ensure equitable school-based discipline practices are implemented in a fair and non-discriminatory manner.

Mansfield Elementary School-Wide Discipline Plan is a separate document that contains all of the details regarding expectations for students, parents, staff and administrators. This document outlines discipline strategies, consequences and rewards. Please review this document with your student and sign and return the necessary signature pages.
