PBIS Handbook


Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS) is an approach to viewing and dealing with social control issues within the school community using proactive methodologies to positively affect the entire educational experience. Over the past year, a team of Burton High School’s faculty has worked in preparation for the school-wide introduction and ultimate implementation of PBIS. Burton’s PBIS team efforts have resulted in the development of strategies aimed at defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors. The values from which Burtons’s PBIS system is built upon is the school-wide expectation that Burton Pumas' are PRR: Positivity, Respect and Responsibility. These characteristics capture the essence of the behaviors faculty and students should expect of themselves and each other.
