PBIS Information

  • Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS)

    AT WOODLAND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WE ARE SAFE, RESPONSIBLE, AND RESPECTFUL.

     

    What is PBIS?
    PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.  It is a research based and school wide system used to help improve school climate and behavior in an effort to create a safer and more effective school. This mission is driven by the Woodland Behavioral Purpose Statement; At Woodland Elementary School we treat each other with respect, take responsibility for our own learning, and strive for a safe and positive school for all.  For more information about PBIS visit http://www.pbis.org/ 

     

    How does PBIS work at Woodland? 
    Teachers at Woodland reward students for demonstrating positive behavior with compliments.  Students earn compliments individually; these individual positive behaviors are recognized on the individual, classroom, and team levels.

     

    Discipline

    Although our staff at Woodland continually strives to reinforce the correct behaviors that we want our students to display, there are times that students do not follow the Woodland Expectations. When students are not following the expectations, a staff member will fill out a referral form to document the incorrect behavior that occurred. The data is helpful to the staff because it informs us of what behaviors need to be re-taught and which students may need extra levels of positive behavioral support.
