• Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a framework designed to improve academic and social behavior for all students by using data for informing decisions using evidence-based behavioral practices. 

    Our PBIS team consists of stakeholders from all areas.  We have clear and concise classroom and schoolwide expectations with a goal of supporting and recognizing positive behavior and choices.  Our team meets monthly to review data and best practices.

    Some key tenants of the program include:

    • Sees behaviors in an environmental context
    • Builds structures for success by being proactive
    • Teaches and acknowledges appropriate behaviors
    • Builds capacity for staff to correct misbehaviors by being consistent
    • Builds positive, flexible environments based on data
    • Has a goal of self-management for students

    We have 3 behavior expectations at Howard Cattle:  Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe.
