TIFT SCHOOLS PARTICIPATING IN PBIS BEHAVIOR SYSTEM

Our schools are participating in an important state and district initiative titled, Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS is a data-driven framework supported by the Georgia Department of Education and the Tift County School District to promote and maximize academic success and behavioral proficiency.

PBIS practices are currently taking place in grades 6-12 throughout the district. PBIS is a process for creating a safer and more effective school environment. PBIS is a team-based process for systematic problem solving, planning, and evaluation based upon behavior data collected from within the school.

Schools are successful when students are encouraged and allowed to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. The ultimate goal of PBIS is to create a safe and productive environment where educators can teach and all students can learn without disruption. By setting clear social and behavioral expectations and directly teaching our students how to model those expectations we can create a positive and productive atmosphere to facilitate optimal learning for all Tift County students.

Want to learn more about PBIS in your child’s school and what you can do to be involved? If so, then be on the lookout for a parent brochure and letter that are being sent home with your child or visit www.pbis.org.
