Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS)

  • Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) when applied at the School-wide level may often be referred to as SWPBS or Sw-PBIS.
    SWPBS refers to a systems change process for an entire school or district. The underlying theme is teaching behavioral expectations in the same manner as any core curriculum subject.

    At James K Polk Elementary School, our core values are
    • Be Safe
    • Be Respectful
    • Be Responsible
    • Be Successful
    These core values provide the foundation for our school-wide PBIS program. It is our belief that when applied consistently and with fidelity, these simple guidelines encourage student success, while inspiring lifelong learners and civic responsibility.
