SAIL: PBIS Initiative
Our school participates in an important district initiative. It is called Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
PBIS focuses on improving a school’s ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students. It includes school-wide procedures and processes intended for all students and staff in all settings. It is an approach to creating a safe and productive learning environment where teachers can teach and all students can learn.
