Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

"Fly Like an Eagle”

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a program designed to promote and maximize academic achievement and behavioral competence. It is a systematic approach to enhancing the capacity of schools to educate all children by developing research-based behavior support systems both school-wide and the classroom.  

This process focuses on improving a school’s ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students. It is a school-wide strategy for helping all students achieve important social and learning goals. We know that when good behavior and good teaching come together, our students will excel in their learning.

PBIS is not a program or a curriculum, but rather a team-based process for systemic problem solving, planning, and evaluation.  It is an approach to creating a safe and productive learning environment.

As part of Fly Like an Eagle, we have established several clear rules for the behavior we expect in a different settings of our school. These expectations will be taught to the students, and regular recognition and acknowledgement given as positive behavior occurs.  

Einstein’s Middle School’s expectations are centered around acting in the following manner: positive, respectful and responsible.  We expect students to respect everyone, education and the environment. These rules, which outline our expectations for behavior in our school, are further defined across different settings on our “FLY matrix”.

We believe that by helping student practice good behavior, we will build a school community where all students have an environment where they can succeed and grow.
