Seldens Landing Elementary is dedicated to creating a positive climate with a research-based approach to discipline called Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS). PBIS is an approach for teaching children appropriate behavior and providing the supports necessary to sustain that behavior. The goal of PBIS is to reduce challenging student behavior through a proactive, positive, and consistent manner across all school settings and to improve academic achievement and social competence. At Seldens, our key component of PBIS is to teach children to be respectful, responsible, and ready by setting the same expectations and using the same terminology across all school settings. These three principles foster a positive learning environment and increase student achievement through positive reinforcement.
