Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS)

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports is an approach to teaching and supporting positive behaviors and meeting the needs of all students. This school-wide approach to discipline focuses on building a safe and positive environment in which all students can learn.

The foundation of PBIS at Lakeland School is the three building-wide expectations:

  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Safe

In addition to our behavior expectations, PBIS has four other components:

  • Behavior Matrix
  • Behavior Tracking
  • Direct Teaching
  • UR Cool and School Shout Out

Parents/Guardians & PBIS

To be successful, our behavior program needs to be a partnership between home and school. Throughout the school year the PBIS team will send updates and information about PBIS. We invite your comments, concerns, and ideas to make PBIS work at our school.

Please support PBIS at Lakeland School by:

  • Reviewing the three B's with your child
  • Having students wear their school spirit shirt on Fridays
  • Talking about the three expectations at home.
  • Providing positive reinforcement at home
  • Sharing comments with or asking questions of PBIS team members

Together we can achieve more!
