PBIS (POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTIONS and SUPPORTS)
Four Seasons A+ Elementary has adopted a proactive approach to creating a positive learning climate called PBIS. PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) is a school-wide system of support that includes proactive strategies for defining, teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments.
PBIS at school fosters respectful, supportive relationships among students and staff; reinforces positive academic and social behavior; and provides an opportunity for positive student-teacher interactions. A continuum of positive behavior support for all students within our school is implemented in all areas of the school including the classroom and non-classroom settings (i.e., hallways, lunchroom, bus). Attention is focused on creating and sustaining systems of support that improve teaching and learning for all students by making problem behavior less, while making desired behavior more effective, efficient and functional.
