PBIS at the Robinson School
What is PBIS and why are we implementing it at our school?
PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) is a multi-tiered framework for establishing the social culture and behavioral supports needed for a school to achieve behavioral and academic outcomes for all students. It is a process that puts in place systems of acknowledging expected behavior while also providing consistent consequences for problem behavior.
How are behavioral expectations taught?
Lesson plans have been developed for all common areas (hallways, bathrooms, cafeteria, recess, etc.) Teachers have taught students all lessons during the first few weeks of school. Lessons will be re-taught after the winter vacation. There are positively stated rules and reminders (visuals) are posted throughout our school. Clearly defined procedures and processes are in place throughout our building. Behavioral expectations are reinforced by all adults.

Robinson bracelets: black or yellow bracelets are given to reinforce positive behavior. Bracelets are given to any student who is demonstrating expected behavior in any part of the school and can be given by any member of the school community at any time. When a bracelet is earned, it will be turned in to their classroom in exchange for a stamp on the classroom beehive. When a classroom meets their goal, they will earn a whole-class reward.
