Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS)

The Positive Behavior Intervention Support Team (PBIS)

Introducing, modeling and reinforcing positive social behavior is an important part of a student’s educational experience. Teaching behavioral expectations in all areas of the school and recognizing students for following them is our goal. The purpose of school-wide PBIS is to establish and maintain a positive school climate.

Oregon City School District adopted the PBIS initiative in the Fall of 2004.  All 9 of our elementary schools, both middle schools, and our high school have been implementing PBIS since the 2004-05 school year.

PBIS in OCSD is organized around 5 major systems:

  1. District level support system
  2. Proactive school-wide reward and discipline systems
  3. Classroom and behavior management systems
  4. Targeted group interventions
  5. Assessment based individualized student interventions

To maintain sustainability of the PBIS initiative, the district has established the following:

  1. District level support
  2. District-wide PBS Coordinator
  3. School based Student Support Teams
  4. Monthly Team Leader meetings (PBIS and iteam)
  5. On-going school and district-wide training and staff development
