At Live Oak, we implement a framework called PBIS. PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. It is an evidence-based approach that focuses on promoting positive behaviors, creating a safe and inclusive school culture, and providing support for students to succeed academically, socially, and emotionally.

  • Why is PBIS Important for Our School?

    PBIS plays a vital role in our school community for several reasons:

    • Promoting a positive and safe school climate: PBIS strategies encourage respectful and responsible behavior, improve peer relationships, and create an environment where all students can thrive.

    • Enhancing student well-being: By implementing PBIS, we aim to support the social and emotional development of our students, fostering their mental well-being and resilience.

    • Increasing academic engagement: When students feel safe, supported, and valued, they are more likely to be engaged in their learning, leading to improved academic outcomes.

  • Benefits of PBIS:

    PBIS brings numerous benefits to our school community:

    • Consistent expectations: PBIS sets clear expectations for behavior throughout the school, providing a common language that all staff and students understand.

    • Proactive approach: With PBIS, we focus on preventing challenging behaviors by teaching and reinforcing positive behaviors, rather than reacting to negative behaviors.

    • Individualized support: PBIS emphasizes the use of data to identify students who may need additional support and interventions, ensuring that every student's needs are met.

    • Celebrating success: PBIS encourages the celebration of positive behaviors and achievements, fostering a supportive and encouraging school culture.
