Welcome to the King George Middle School Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) Website
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a statewide initiative adopted by many Virginia school systems that focuses on improving positive behavior and academic progress in schools to ensure that all students are able to learn in a safe and positive educational environment. The primary goal of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is to:
"...build the capacity of schools to develop, implement, and sustain School-wide, classroom-level, and pupil-specific research supported strategies and procedures... administrators, general educators, special educators, and support personnel—along with school staff, are able to increase educational achievement and promote social skills that allow students to access academic content. At the same time, PBIS of Virginia decreases or eliminates the vast majority of behavior problems that impede the teaching and learning process.School personnel spend less time on discipline and more time on instruction. With PBIS of Virginia, schools throughout VA are able to incorporate a Response-to-Intervention approach so that education personnel are highly qualified to respond positively to every student by matching the level and intensity of intervention to each student’s academic and social skills needs."
