What is P.B.I.S.?
P.B.I.S. stands for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports. P.B.I.S. is a team based systematic approach in teaching behavioral expectations throughout the school. It is based on a proactive model which teaches the behaviors, reinforces and recognizes students who are able to model these behaviors and has systems in place to support students who have a difficult time or may present with more challenging behaviors.

Madison Elementary is a P.B.I.S. school. The Madison motto is: "I am Respectful, I am Responsible, and I am Safe!"

This motto is used on a school-wide behavior matrix for all areas of our school. The Madison matrix explains the expected behaviors in specific areas. When teachers see students following the Madison matrix in these areas, they pass out a red horseshoe ticket, which can be used at our school store or in classrooms for various incentives.

A behavior flowchart is also used by staff at Madison when students are not following the expected behaviors on the matrix. The behavior flowchart determines classroom managed versus office managed behaviors. A referral form can be written for either classroom or office managed behaviors when warranted.
