WHAT ARE POSITIVE INTERVENTIONS AND SUPPORTS?

Positive behavior interventions and supports focus on understanding why behaviors occur and implementing strategies to teach students more appropriate behaviors. Overall, positive interventions that focus on changing student behavior involves:

1) Teaching the behaviors that are expected,

2) Modeling those behaviors,

3) Consistently recognizing and rewarding the behaviors when they occur, and

4) Consistently enforcing meaningful consequences for behavior intervention.

The positive behavioral approach to addressing behavior can occur on a school-wide level, within classrooms, or with individual students to assist schools to increase academic performance, increase safety, decrease problem behavior, and establish positive school cultures.

This website is designed to support teachers, administrators, and other Escambia County School District staff in developing positive behavior interventions and supports to address challenging behavior exhibited by students in regular and exceptional student education programs.

 

 
Changing behavior is first a matter of TEACHING, second a matter of MODELING, and never a matter of reacting!
