PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports) is a common approach to discipline that promotes positive behaviors in students.

— It is a systems approach that includes different intensities of supports for those students who need it.

— The goal is to create an environment for students to be both socially and academically successful.

— Refers to a systems change process for the entire school. The underlying theme is teaching behavioral expectations in the same manner as any core curriculum subject. 

T.L. Reed School is in its' fifth year being a PBIS school. It is the mission of the TLR PBIS Team to facilitate the effective teaching and learning of positive behavioral expectations and helping each child reach their greatest potential. Through positive behavioral supports, we aspire to teach life skills that enable children to deal confidently with the complex and rapidly changing world by establishing behavioral supports and a social culture needed for all students in school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.
