PBIS” is short for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports



“PBIS” is short for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. This language comes directly from the 1997 reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The voices and perspectives of family and community members are involved directly in the PBIS process through active participation in, for example, leadership teams, practice implementation, and outcome evaluations at the school, district, and state levels. Effective classroom management and preventive school discipline are essential for supporting teaching and learning.

YCMS participates in this behavioral management program. Each month at YCMS students are rewarded for good behavior. At the end of the month, students that have not received a referral have a chance to join in lots of different activities.
