Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports is a program supported by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction to promote and maximize academic and behavioral success. It is a school-wide strategy for helping all students achieve important social and learning goals. We know that when good behavior and good teaching come together, our students will excel in their learning. The schools in Beaufort County area are proud to be a part of this exciting initiative.
As part of the PBIS program, we will establish several clear rules for the behavior we expect in all areas of our school. We will teach the expectations to the students and reward them frequently with positive reinforcement for their great behavior. The expectations for all student behavior will be clear throughout our building, on buses and in playground areas. You will be able to ask your student, “What are the rules in your school?” “How do you follow the rules?” “What happens when a teacher sees you following the rules?” These rules will be displayed throughout the school and will be referred to as our PBIS Matrix. You can also view the attached file to see our Matrix.
