Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports

PBIS is a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.
PBIS IS NOT a packaged curriculum, scripted intervention, or manualized strategy.
PBIS IS a prevention-oriented way for school personnel to (a) organize evidence-based practices, (b) improve their implementation of those practices, and (c) maximize academic and social behavior outcomes for students.
PBIS supports the success of ALLstudents.

What is PBIS?

Positive Behavior Intervention Supports

(PBIS) is a system for 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


The foundation of PBIS at Mountain View

is our five REACH expectations:

• Respect

• Effort

• Attitude

• Cooperation

• Honesty

To reinforce the REACH expectations,

our behavior matrix is taught and posted

in each school setting across Mountain

View campus. Positive behavior and

noise level expectations are explicitly

stated on posters and taught in all

classrooms. Positive recognition for

students who exemplify REACH are

embedded in the program along with

behavioral supports and intervention

when needed.

Mustang Motivation Recognition

In addition to classroom based

management systems, Mountain View

recognizes students demonstrating

REACH expectations school wide through:

• Bimonthly REACH assemblies where

awards are given to students who

exemplify the focus expectation of

Respect, Effort, Attitude, Cooperation,

or Honesty.

• Mustang Money is earned when a

student shows REACH characteristics.

A student can earn this money at any

time of the day and from any staff.

• Weekly Mustang Market where

students can spend their money on

prizes, privileges and rewards.

• “Bucket Filler” daily acknowledgments

with prizes and recognition during

morning announcements.

• Academic Awards Assemblies for

grades 1-3 every trimester and

annually for grades 4-6.
