    What is PBIS?

    Oakbrook Elementary is proud to be a PBIS school. Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a nationally recognized process that helps create safer and more effective schools through encouraging and acknowledging positive behavior and actions. It is centered around problem-solving, planning, and evaluation.

    Quick Facts About PBIS at OES

    • Teachers and all school staff are encouraged and expected to teach, model, and support positive behavior with each and every student in our school community.
    • PBIS includes school-wide procedures and processes to help remind all students and staff of the behaviors expected at OES in both the classroom and non-classroom settings.
    • The PBIS process also focuses on those students that may need more behavioral support.  Teachers and staff members help to support these students in a variety of ways so they can be successful daily in the school environment.
    • It is a team-based process that involves everyone in the school- students, teachers, staff, and all personnel. 
    • At OES, we keep the PBIS philosophy FUN!  Students are rewarded for showing their PAWS. PAWS is an acronym that stands for: Personal Best, Acting Responsibly, Work and Play Safely, and Show Respect.
    • When a student displays Above and Beyond Behavior for a certain number of days, they can first earn a bronze medal, then  a silver, and finally a gold medal.
    • OES also likes to reward teachers for working hard to teach, model, and encourage PAWS.

    OES prides itself on having high academic and behavioral standards.  PBIS helps to encourage this and celebrate those successes.
