Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS) is an approach to viewing and dealing with social control issues within the school community using proactive methodologies to positively affect the entire educational experience. Over the past year, a team of Burton High School’s faculty has worked in preparation for the school-wide introduction and ultimate implementation of PBIS. Burton’s PBIS team efforts have resulted in the development of strategies aimed at defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors. The values from which Burtons’s PBIS system is built upon is the school-wide expectation that Burton Pumas' are PRR: Positivity, Respect and Responsibility. These characteristics capture the essence of the behaviors faculty and students should expect of themselves and each other.
PBIS Team Purpose/Goal
To generate new knowledge and understanding of Burton High School's behavioral expectations and related policies affecting student achievement based on both quantitative and perceptual data; To seek school wide faculty and community commitment to the fundamental beliefs and values from which PBIS was built upon.
