Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support

Each school within the Wilson Elementary School District implements Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). 

PBIS is an evidence based three-tiered framework designed to improve and integrate all of the data, systems, and practices affecting student outcomes every day. Furthermore, it is to prevent problem behavior while teaching socially appropriate behaviors. The focus of PBIS at WSD is creating and sustaining safe and inclusive environments for all students to support appropriate behavior and redirect disruptive behavior.

4 Tiers of PBIS

How does Wilson implement PBIS?

WSD strives to create safe, positive environments by: defining and teaching behavioral expectations; monitoring and acknowledging appropriate behavior; providing corrective, appropriate consequences; providing appropriate behavioral supports (including actions like mentoring, social skills groups, and daily monitoring); using a team-based approach; and using referral data for problem solving. 

Who Is Responsible For Implementing Restorative Practices and PBIS?

Everyone.  At every site. Under the direction of the campus principal/assistant principal and/or the MTSS Facilitator, staff members at every site must understand school rules; reinforce appropriate student behavior; and use constructive classroom management, positive behavioral interventions and supports, and/or restorative practices strategies, where appropriate, to promote safe, inclusive, and supportive learning environments for all students.

What is PAX?

Pax is Latin for the word peace. Wilson School District uses the Pax Good Behavior Game to support the implementation of PBIS district-wide. The vision of the Pax program is to empower individuals and communities to create a more nurturing environment with universal access to research-based prevention science in order to improve the well-being of people from all walks of life around the world. This is accomplished through the use of ten strategies teachers use in their classrooms to promote peace, time on task, and a positive classroom culture.
