Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) is an approach we use at Roosevelt Elementary School to promote students to be respectful, responsible, and safe. With PBIS, we teach our students about behavior expectations and strategies. The focus of PBIS is prevention, not punishment.

The components of PBIS are as follows:

Our school establishes and enforces consistent expectations for behavior for the entire campus and specifically in the following areas:

  • Sidewalks
  • Hallways
  • Cafeteria
  • Classroom
  • Playground
  • Restrooms

We teach behavior expectations through discussion, modeling, and utilizing positive reinforcement.

The goal of implementing the PBIS approach at Roosevelt Elementary School is to provide our students an environment that helps them grow by being respectful, responsible, and safe.

Please refer to Roosevelt Elementary’s Tiger Pride Matrix that defines expected behaviors for our students. We ask that you please remind your child of the expectations daily so that he/she can be successful at school by demonstrating how to be respectful, responsible, and safe.
