What is the Purpose of PBIS? The purpose of the School-wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports is to provide an immediate reinforcement for desired behavior. The immediate reinforcement acts as a teaching tool for desired behavior. It keeps staff and students attention focused on desired behaviors. The immediate reinforcement is a bridge to long term rewards. The immediate reinforcement increases the likelihood of repeating the desired behavior. It fosters a positive school climate and reduces the need for engaging in time consuming disciplinary measures. Students become eager to receive the long term rewards!!
