Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS)

PBIS Assembly

Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) builds on the positive behaviors already working in each school. These behaviors then become expectations that are taught and practiced school-wide.  PBIS schools have created a more positive environment for students and staff by establishing clear expectations for their students and taking active steps in teaching, modeling and reinforcing appropriate behaviors school wide.  

Congratulations to Leona Doubek Elementary School for being named a School of Distinction for the third year in a row by the Wisconsin PBIS network for the 2015-2016 school year!

Schools recognized as Schools of Distinction are:

  • Sustaining fidelity implementation of critical elements of tier 1/universal PBIS (as demonstrated by a minimum of two consecutive years of Benchmarks of Quality results)
  • Demonstrating that their sustained implementation has had positive effects on their academic and/or behavioral data
  • Implementing PBIS throughout the school environment, including classrooms
  • Involving parents and the community to ensure the continued success of PBIS implementation in the school
  • Examining data to ensure that the tier 1/universal system is effective for all groups of students

Leona Doubek Elementary School

At Leona Doubek Elementary School, we are using PBIS as a process for creating a safer and more effective school.  The purpose of implementing a PBIS system at our elementary schools is to establish a consistent method of addressing student behaviors, recognize/acknowledge children for appropriate behaviors, decrease off-task behavior and increase and gain back instructional minutes.  Students are recognized with paws, and classroom celebrations for meeting the expectations and following the rules (examples of classroom celebrations include:  dress-up day, game time, movie/popcorn, etc.).
