Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS)
"School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) is a proactive, team-based framework for creating and sustaining safe and effective schools. Emphasis is placed on prevention of problem behavior, development of
pro-social skills and the use of data-based problem solving for addressing existing behavior concerns. School-wide PBIS increases the capacity of schools to educate all students utilizing research-based school-wide classroom and individualized interventions." (from Michigan Department of Education Implementation Guide 2010 p. vii)
George Crockett Academy uses the three tier model for Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports. Tier 1 is classroom support, tier 2 is individual targeted support and tier 3 is intensive support. See PBIS Tiers.
