Parents/Guardians and PBIS

To be successful, our behavior program needs to be a partnership between home and school. Throughout the school year the PBIS team will send updates and information about PBIS. We invite your comments, concerns and ideas to make PBIS work at our school.

Please support PBIS at NMS by:
  • Reviewing behavior expectations with your child
  • Using the PRIDE acronym at home
  • Providing positive reinforcement (rewarding good choices with compliments or quality time) at home
  • Sharing comments with or asking questions of PBIS team members 

What is PBIS?

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an approach to teaching and supporting positive behaviors and meeting the needs of ALL students. This school-wide approach to discipline focuses on building a safe and positive environment in which all students can learn.

In addition to our behavior expectations, PBIS has four other components (1) a behavior matrix which explains expectation in each school setting; (2) direct teaching of the expectations; (3) PBIS postcards; and (4) PBIS student recognition rewards.
