POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTIONS AND SUPPORTS (PBIS)
PBIS is a school-based problem-solving model implemented all across District 65 schools and supported by the Illinois State Board of Education. The PBIS system focuses on the creation and maintenance of a school climate that is most conducive to student achievement. A hallmark of the PBIS system at King Arts is a refrain you will hear often if you are in the school:
“BE RESPONSIBLE, BE RESPECTFUL, BE READY TO LEARN”

ELEMENTARY PBIS PROGRAM
In the elementary grades, our overall goal with PBIS is to create a positive environment for students to learn and build social skills. Each month we will have a new focus. This focus area guides the teachers in using positive interventions and supports to build a strong environment. Please check out our FAQ page for some more detailed information and explanation of some vocabulary you may be hearing at home!
MIDDLE SCHOOL PBIS PROGRAM
The middle school students are given a monthly focus that is selected by a student committee of 8th graders. The focuses areas revolve around being respectful, being responsible, and being ready to learn. Each month the students work on the focus and earn celebrations based on their positive behavior. Students also earn stamps during class which can be used to buy items at the school Swag Store. The big focus of the year is being respectful of our peers, teachers, and environment.
