Positive Behavior Support System

Positive Behavior Support gives people a new way to think about behavior. It is based on an understanding of why problem behavior occurs. This approach can be applied on a school-wide basis as well as in a classroom or with an individual student. PBS uses evidence on which to base decisions that address behavior in school. It strives to create a positive school culture, decrease problem behavior, increase academic performance and safety.

A Positive Behavior School

Bonita Springs Elementary will become a Positive Behavior Support (PBS) School during the 2015-2016 school year. Students are taught our PBS motto and the PAWS rules throughout the year. Our PAWS Motto is:

I am Positive.
I am Always responsible.
I am Welcoming to others.
I am a Scholar.

Respect for each other is our daily message as students and adults interact throughout the day.
