October PBIS Family Initiative

As a parent, you can be part of the formula for school success by using the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) strategy at home. Below are PBIS steps taken in the school to support appropriate behaviors and to provide a safe learning and environment.  You can try them at home! 

  • Develop clear expectations along with your child’s input 
  • Explain the expected behaviors at a level your child will understand
  • Acknowledge appropriate behaviors – use positive reinforcement to teach your child which actions/behaviors are expected
  • When unacceptable behaviors occur, remind the child of the expectations
  • Reteach, model and/or have your child practice the appropriate behaviors
