Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports
Indian Trail High School and Academy

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)  is a system involving the prevention of and response to classroom and school behaviors that can negatively impact academic achievement.  The emphasis of the system is to develop and maintain safe environments where teachers can teach and students can learn.

Behavior and academics are inseparable--without behavior that is appropriate for an academic setting, student achievement in school is hindered.  Therefore, we believe that it is critical that all school staff take time to teach expected positive behaviors for the school environment along with traditional academic content.  School improvement goals connected to this understanding have been established:
  • Communicate behavioral expectations and consequences
  • Establish an effective learning environment
  • Promote a positive school climate and culture
  • Decrease the amount of problem behavior incidents
  • Acknowledge exemplary behavior
  • Increase communication regarding expectations
  • Encourage parent participation in student learning
