Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS)

  • PBIS, or Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support, is an all encompassing approach to social, emotional and behavior support with an aim to improve outcomes for all students in their daily lives at Redwood City School District (RCSD) and beyond.

    Character building, modeling, and positive reinforcement are at the forefront of this data-driven program.  Clear expectations for school citizenship are presented and students are recognized for making positive choices.

    PBIS celebrates the whole child for who they are and empowers them to make decisions within structure, preparing them for school and the world. Teachers and administrators at RCSD use PBIS tools to reach the minds and hearts of students, while more readily collecting information that helps adults make informed decisions about the school atmosphere, as well.

    PBIS is implemented at all RCSD schools.
