PBIS At Home
What is PBIS?
PBIS, Positive Behavior Interventions and Support, is a multi-tiered system of school-wide support which ustilizes positive reinforcement, data- based decision making, and common language.
At Minden Elementary School, we are SAFE, RESPECTFUL, and RESPONSIBLE.
Why should I understand PBIS in the home?
A partnership between families and schools within a multi-tiered system of support is essential in order for all students to gain success. Family participation and voice in the development of school-wide PBIS is invaluable. Families have a unique perspective of their child's strengths and needs. By increasing involvement and partnering, they can play an influential role in creating a bridge between a child’s school experience and home life. Through partnership and collaboration at all levels of PBIS, positive outcomes for children are attainable both at home, in school, and their community.
