PBIS: Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports is….

  • an evidence-based, data-driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents and support improved academic outcomes for all students.
  • in more than 18,000 schools nationwide saving countless instructional hours otherwise lost to discipline.

At Newton High School, PBIS provides us with a system to 1) communicate our expectations for the positive behaviors we want our students to exhibit, and 2) frequently acknowledge students and staff who exemplify our expectations.
