Positive Behaviorial Intervention Supports (PBIS)

At Lexington, we help students learn and practice positive behaviors that support academic, emotional and social growth. We focus on positive expectations and interactions and provide a school climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm. We do this through a program known as Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports or PBIS.

The PBIS team consists of mental health counselors and behavioral specialists who work closely with students, teachers and support staff. The team focuses on school- wide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors. PBIS includes both classroom and non- classroom settings, such as hallways, the cafeteria and buses.
