Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS)
Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive approach used to teach expectations and positive behavior here at Appleby. Our students are exposed to school-wide expectations on a daily basis through morning announcements, direct behavior instruction, and exposure to sixteen social skills that students need in order to learn to be successful in and out of school. We encourage our students to “Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe.” We truly believe that all the students here at Appleby are capable of meeting school expectations and demonstrating proper behavior. The purpose of the PBIS approach is that soon enough all students, teachers, and parents see the appropriate behavior as the norm. We will use a system of positive rewards. These include special phone calls home, certificates to local restaurants, positive assemblies, among other activities.
