Cougar PRIDE (Positive Behavior Support Plan)

What is PBIS?
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an approach to teaching and supporting positive behaviors and meeting the needs of ALL students. This school-wide approach to discipline focuses on building a safe and positive environment in which all students can learn in order to improve academic achievement for all students. The foundation of PBIS at A. M. Kulp Elementary School is based on three building-wide behavioral expectations: 
As well as our behavior expectations, PBIS includes these four other components:
  1. A behavior matrix which eplains behavior expectations in each school setting.
  2. Direct teaching in the classroom of the expected behaviors.
  3.  Cougar Paws and monthly celebrations - the positive behavior recognition system.
  4. A three-tiered approach to interventions.
