What is PBIS?

Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS) is a process for creating a safer and more effective school.  This approach teaches students to be responsible, respectful and safe.  PBIS is highly researched and evidence-based system for teaching behavioral expectations throughout the school.  PBIS supports the safety and success of ALL students. 

Altoona Intermediate School's 3 Core Values:

  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Safe

School Wide Systems
Specific procedures for teaching and celebrating these expectations will occur throughout the year. This will be achieved through the use of:

  • Cool Tools 
    School wide instruction of expected behavior.  All behaviors are taught at the beginning of the school year, after winter break and throughout the year whenever a student or class demonstrates difficulties displaying appropriate behaviors in a particular setting.
  • Office Discipline Referrals 
    A communication tool between home and school to inform parents of problem behaviors.  This data is tracked and collected for staff to see how referrals are being made each month and when and where behavior problems are occuring.
