PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Support. It is a program designed to teach children to be respectful, be responsible, and to be safe while they are at school. The staff at Eureka Heights Elementary want to encourage students each day to make good behavior decisions.

PBIS provides teachers and other school staff with information to help prevent behavior problems and make school a safe learning environment.

Research shows that the use of PBIS in school has resulted in increased time for instruction. It also increases positive behaviors school wide, and decreases disruptive behaviors.

Thanks to a grant from Wayne RESA we are able to hang posters that highlight behavior expectations in all areas of the school. We can give rewards to students who make good behavior choices by being respectful, responsible, and safe each day in all areas of the school.

How Does it Work?

  • PBIS school teaches the expectations to all students and provides frequent opportunity to practice.

  • PBIS school provides a consistent, predictable, and fair use of consequences for all students.
