PBIS General Overview
MR3 is a school-wide program based on the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework. Staff, parents, and board members have worked closely together to develop MR3 which matches the principles of PBIS in a way that fits the goals, mission, and culture of Magma Ranch K-8 (MRK-8).
School-wide PBIS is a research-based framework that has been proven to improve school climate, reduce problem behavior, and increase academic instructional time in schools (for additional information go to www.swpbis.pbworks.com). Two primary areas of emphasis in PBIS are prevention and instruction of social behavior. PBIS is based on the idea that when students are taught clearly defined behavioral expectations and provided with predictable responses to their behavior, both positive and corrective, all students are more likely to meet those expectations.
PBIS for Teachers and Staff
The PBIS program is not limited to only student behavior. Our teachers and staff use PBIS to foster strong working relationships. Watch our video on expectations in the Staff Lounge:
