Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive systems approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success. As a response to Intervention model, PBIS applies a three-tiered system of support, and a problem-solving process to enhance the capacity of schools to effectively educate all students.

It’s all about:
Systems (How things are done)
Data (How decisions are made)
Practices (How staff interact with students)
At Kingsley, we expect all of our Comets everyday to be SAFE, CARING, RESPECTFUL and HERE & READY TO LEARN.
All students receive ongoing direct teaching of these behavioral expectations and Cool Tools (problem-solving strategies). In addition, students are reinforced daily for engaging in expected, positive behaviors (Ask about Gotchas). Students earn classroom or school-wide celebrations and turn in their Gotchas for a monthly raffle. For more information on District 65 Behavioral Expectations, please read the Student Handbook.
