Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

PBIS is being used in more than 18,000 schools across the United States and abroad. PBIS is grounded in a continuum of evidence-based interventions that are used consistently throughout the school to prevent problematic behavior, to teach pro-social skills, and to reinforce new skills. Many educators and other school staff across the U.S. are witnessing the benefits of this approach and are seeing safer, calmer learning environments. The ultimate goal is to improve behavioral and academic outcomes for all of our students at Maunawili Elementary. 

One of the key features of the PBIS framework is the establishment of school wide behavioral expectations that all students are held to. These are being taught and reinforced in all settings at Maunawili Elementary. Review the Behavior Matrix to see what the 3BEs look like across our campus.

Our school wide behavioral expectations are the 3 BEs.  

·      Be Safe

·      Be Respectful

·      Be Responsible

How Can You Help at Home?

·      Ask your child if they know what the 3 BEs are.

·      Talk to your child about ways to follow the 3 BEs at school and at home.

Our PBIS Leadership Team includes our principal, teachers, counselor, Behavior Health Specialist, School Psychologist, and parents.  **View some of the videos created by Maunawili’s PBIS Leadership Team below:
