Reedley High School
School-Wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports
The main focus of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is to provide a clear system for all expected behaviors at Reedley High School. While many faculty and students may have assumptions of what is expected behavior, we cannot assume that everyone’s beliefs are similar. Through PBIS, we will work to create and maintain a productive, safe environment in which ALL school community members have clear expectations and understandings of their role in the educational process.
Schools that implement school-wide systems of positive behavior support focus on taking a team-based system approach and teaching appropriate behavior to all students in the school. Schools that have been successful in building school-wide systems develop procedures to accomplish the following:
Behavioral expectations are taught using the same teaching formats applied to other curricula. The general rule is presented, the rationale for the rule is discussed, positive examples (“right way”) are described and rehearsed, and negative examples (“wrong way”) are described and modeled. Students are given an opportunity to practice the “right way” until they demonstrate fluent performance.
“What Does School-Wide PBIS Emphasize?”
In general, SWPBIS emphasizes four integrated elements: (a) data for decision making, (b) measurable outcomes supported and evaluated by data, (c) practices with evidence that these outcomes are achievable, and (d) systems that efficiently and effectively support implementation of these practices.
These four elements are guided by six important principles:
Develop a continuum of scientifically based behavior and academic interventions and supports
Use data to make decisions and solve problems
Arrange the environment to prevent the development and occurrence of problem behavior
Teach and encourage pro-social skills and behaviors
Implement evidence-based behavioral practices with fidelity and accountability
Screen universally and monitor student performance & progress continuously
Reedley High School
Reedley High School will provide a positive, safe, healthy, nurturing and respectful environment in which all students have the opportunity to progress academically and to become productive members of society. PBIS aims to decrease behavioral infractions showing year-over-year improvement. PBIS assists towards this end as it is based upon the concept of teaching behaviors that will prevent noncompliance. We will provide this through the implementation of PBIS, which promotes the following:
