Mid-Buchanan Elementary School
School-Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Plan Overview


What is PBIS?

PBIS is a tiered system of preventative interventions that support a student’s academic and emotional success. When implemented at the school level, PBIS provides a clear system for all expected behaviors at Mid-Buchanan Elementary. Through PBIS we will work together to create and maintain a productive and safe environment in which all school community members clearly understand the shared expectations for behavior. Through positive recognition and continual teaching of expectations, students will experience academic and social growth.

What are the benefits of PBIS?

We believe that through the implementation of PBIS systems and strategies we will increase student academic performance, increase safety, decrease problem behavior and establish a positive school climate.


PBIS methods are research-based and have been proven to significantly reduce the occurrence of problem behaviors in schools. One of the key components of the system is a focus on prevention. Students are taught clearly defined behavioral expectations for all aspects of the school environment. They are provided with predictable responses to their behavior, both positive and corrective.
