• As a staff we have developed a Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) model. PBIS is a systems approach to preventing and responding to classroom and school discipline problems. PBIS develops school-wide systems that support staff to teach and promote appropriate behavior in all students. By reducing behavioral problems, PBIS creates and maintains safe learning environments where teachers at Silva Valley can teach and students can learn. 


    Purpose of PBIS


    • Increase consistent use of positive teaching and reinforcement strategies among all school staff at school-wide, classroom, and individual student levels. 
    • Reduce use of reactive discipline measures (office discipline, referrals, etc.) in schools for all students. 
    • Increase data-based decision-making about behavior and academic instruction and reinforcement across all school settings. 
    • Implement effective comprehensive supports/services/interventions for students with the most intensive behavioral/emotional needs.
