PB+IS

History of KCUSD PBIS:

Since 2010, Kings Canyon Unified has involved cohorts of schools in Fresno County Office of Education’s 3-year training cycle for Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports, also known as PBIS.  Across the United States, educational professionals and research groups have begun to seek out more effective means of shaping student behavior.  Zero Tolerance policies, which may be necessary for violent, serious, or criminal offenses on school campuses, simply do not include a process for instilling better decision making in students.   Schools implementing PBIS are trained to teach behavior expectations to students, reward the abundance of positive examples students demonstrate, and intervene immediately when negative behaviors warrant negative consequences.

 

In 2013, the California Education Code 48900.5 was updated to include PBIS as a reasonable, useful alternative to previous practices of automatic removal from school.  PBIS also involves careful school-wide monitoring and reporting of student behaviors,  which is shared regularly with staff so that staff can provide feedback in adapting how consequences – positive and negative – can better serve the entire campus in providing a safe, healthy learning environment.

What is PB+IS @ KCUSD...

Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports

 

PB+IS is an overarching term used to explain how schools:

  • Teach behavior expectations
  • Promote positive behavior
  • Respond with interventions when students don’t follow behavior expectations

 

PB+IS Works to “Establish a Positive Social Culture”

  • Student expectations are defined, taught and acknowledged
  • Student behavioral errors have immediate and consistent interventions, supports and/or consequences
  • Faculty and staff behavior is positive, predictable and consistent

 

PB+IS Data:

Schools routinely gather behavior data, summarize it and use it to inform decision-making

 

Tier 3 (Intensive Interventions)

  • Functional Behavior Assessment
  • Individual behavior plans
  • Individual Counseling
  • Parent Collaboration

Few Students need to receive Tier 3 PB+IS (When students need more than Tier 1 & 2 interventions & supports to follow expectations.)

Tier 2 (Interventions)

  • Check-in Check-out
  • Mentoring
  • Individual and/or small group Social Skills and/or Social Emotional Learning (Social Worker/Onsite Counselor)
  • Increased Parent involvement
  • Interventions
  • Data-based decision making and monitoring

Some students need to receive Tier 2 PB+IS

(When students need more than Tier 1 supports to follow expectations.)

Tier 1 (School Culture...)

  • Established School-wide expectations (posted)
  • Regular teaching of expectations
  • Systematic social skill teaching
  • School-wide recognition systems
  • Firm, fair and corrective responses to discipline
  • Evidence-based curriculum
  • Strong classroom management

All Students Receive Tier 1 PB+IS


Much time and support is put into teaching expectations & encouraging positive behaviors.  


        


PB+IS 
is the Culture & Climate of your school!
When a student doesn't understand or follow the school rules (expectations)... then schools provide Interventions & Supports 
to help him or her understand and learn.  

It is all about...
