    PBIS for CenClear Preschool

    What is PBIS?

    PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. The broad purpose of PBIS is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and equity of our classrooms. PBIS improves social, emotional, and academic outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities and students from underrepresented groups. CenClear implements PBIS through the framework of the Pyramid Model.

    Our PBIS Mission Statement

    We will provide a culturally responsive education to all children, families, CenClear staff and community partners in order to promote equitable outcomes that are developmentally appropriate and inclusive of all our children and families. We will implement evidence-based practices to promote healthy social and emotional well-being. 

    PBIS Vision Statment

    We will support the behavioral needs of all children through the Framework of the Pyramid Model to promote healthy social emotional develoment and reduce the need for more intensive interventions.

    Social Emotional Development

    To support Social Emotional Development, we utilized PBIS through the framework of the Pyramid Model. This method of support focuses on a variety of methods to help children, families, and staff understand and support the development of these skills at home and in a social setting. This model focuses on nurturing and responsive relationships, high-quality supportive environments, targeted social emotional supports, and intensive interventions when needed. more information can be found at www.challengingbehavior.ort website. 

    One of our goals is to teach children appropriate behavior in the classroom. With your support, we will help them learn to exhibit socially acceptable and respectful manners and to express their ideas and opinions in appropriate ways.

    The classrooms are structured to help children learn to interact appropriately and we have classroom systems in place to address routine behavior concerns when tehy occur. 

    Classroom teachers and support staff are trained in techniques that support Social Emotional competence and limit challenging behaviors. There are times when children do not respond to supports and adaptations. If this occurs, the team working with you and your child will meet to discuss methods to use to address these concerns. Our main goal within every classroom is to assure that all children and adults are safe at all times. Parent support and involvement is critical during these situations and we will work with you and your children to address challenging behaviors.
