What is PBIS?
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a framework for creating safe, positive, and equitable schools where every student can feel valued, connected to the school community and supported by caring adults. By implementing evidence-based practices within PBIS, schools support their students’ academic, social, emotional, and behavioral success, engage with families to create locally-meaningful and culturally-relevant outcomes, and use data to make informed decisions that improve the way things work for everyone.

How does it work?
Through the PBIS framework, our school has a set of explicitly taught and practiced expectations for all areas of Live Oak. In order to establish a positive school climate, we reward students with tickets called "Oso Goods." These can be collected to earn rewards. Students also work together to earn rewards as a whole school.
Part of this foundational system is accountability and data. When a student has a behavioral issue, they may receive a minor or a major behavior tracking referral. For the purpose of communication, when a student receives two minor infraction referrals, then the teacher will inform the family. After four minor infraction referrals or one major referral they will then conference with the principal and family.
Our focus is to effectively teach appropriate behavioral skills to all students and to intervene early before unwanted behaviors escalate. At Live Oak, we seek to create a positive school environment free of bullying where all students feel safe and respected.
-Ways to participate: Ask your child about our 3 school rules and how they receive Oso Goods. The Live Oak PBIS Committee meets monthly. Contact us if you would like to participate. Family informational meetings are upcoming through the district.
