What is PBIS?

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional and academic success.We began implementation of the PBIS program in 2014 and established a solid foundation on which to improve upon. Here at Furr, we center PBIS on 4 Core Values: Safe, Orderly, Act Responsibly, and Respectful – also referred to as S.O.A.R. behaviors around school. Teachers and Staff explicitly teach and model S.O.A.R. behaviors throughout the year and across all of our behavior focus areas including: the classroom, bathrooms, cafeteria, playground, hallway, and buses. Students are encouraged to display S.O.A.R. behaviors in all of these focus areas. An incentive system is in place to reward students as faculty acknowledges their positive behavior. We use “S.O.A.R. Cards” to keep track of students’ progress to earning those incentives. More about the S.O.A.R. Card system and incentives can be found by clicking on the S.O.A.R. Card link on the left.
