PBIS/Restorative Practices

Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS)

Positive Behavior Supports (PBIS) is a proactive approach to establishing behavioral supports  needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional and academic success.

Attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary (school-wide), secondary (classroom), and tertiary (individual) systems of support that improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, work, recreation) for all students by making targeted misbehavior less effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional.

The following diagram illustrates the multi-level approach offered to all students in the school. These group depictions represent systems of support:

While all of our schools implement PBIS, each school is unique and is at different phases of implementation process.

Restorative Practices

Restorative Practices is a framework that centers around positive relationships for community building and restoring relationships when harm has occurred. Restorative Practices includes repairing harm done to relationships instead of assigning blame and dispensing punishment. Restorative Practices is not merely a disciplinary approach to wrongdoing, but it is compatible with education in that it supports a prevention and intervention approach.
