Positive Behavior Intervention and Support
Involvement at Home

  • Families are encouraged to support Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) through the use of common language and expectations in the home.
  • Get to know your school’s 3-5 school-wide rules and work with your child on how to connect them to behaviors at home.
  • PBIS schools focus on teaching the behaviors they desire while at school through clear instruction, practice, and positive reinforcement. 
  • A strong partnership between the home and the school can provide families with ideas on addressing behavior in a similar way at home as well.

Parents can work along with teachers to promote positive behaviors in school. Below are a few steps.

  1. Keep in contact with your child’s teacher(s) regarding school life accomplishments.  
  2. Verbally acknowledge your child’s school life accomplishments.
  3. Remind your child that you are proud of them.
  4. Follow through with promises and rules at home.

It is important that school personnel and families team up to support students academically, behaviorally, socially, physically and emotionally. Let’s partner together to develop the whole child!
