What is Positive Behavioral Intervention & Support?

The Ivy Drive Elementary Positive Behavioral Support (PBIS) plan was developed by a team of teachers and the school principal. The team of teachers consisted of a grade level representative, special education teacher and the school psychologist. The purpose of the PBIS plan was to develop a school-wide code of conduct:

At Ivy Drive Elementary we are the BEST WE CAN BE by Respecting Ourselves, Respecting the School and Respecting Others.

The PBIS team also developed expected student and teacher behaviors for a variety of setting. Students are rewarded at the end of each school day for modeling appropriate behaviors. At the end of 20 school day students are recognized by choosing an incentive from a list.

At the start of every school year are students are reminded and re-taught the appropriate school-wide expectations. We start the year by having the grade level transitions from one setting to another. Positive and negative behaviors are modeled by staff members.

  • Teachers must keep track of all students' daily data. Use your own discretion on which format to use (examples will be provided).
  • Each student that ends their day on GREEN is allowed to color in a block on their incentive chart.
  • Once a student earns 20 blocks on their incentive chart, they select a reward from the All Star menu. Teachers will be supplied with rewards to hand out.
