What is PBIS?

Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students on a school site to achieve social, emotional and academic success. PBIS is a framework implemented by explicitly teaching expected behaviors, acknowledging appropriate behaviors and re-teaching when behavioral errors are made. There are 3 tiers or levels of intervention and support. Currently EHMS is fully operating at Tier 1 and building/training for Tier 2.



We have four school wide expectations – Be Responsible, Have Integrity, Be Considerate, Be Hardworking, also known as RICH. Students are explicitly taught what it means to be RICH at EHMS during our Kickoff activities in the beginning of the school year, within the context of classroom expectations, and throughout the year through advocacy lessons. We use of our RICH tickets as a Tier 1 support, students are recognized for their demonstration of RICH.

History of Tiered Fidelity Inventory at EHMS

The Tiered Fidelity Inventory (our PBIS assessment) indicates how we are implementing all tiers of PBIS at our site. We have identified items from each tier that we want to improve, and we have included them in our Action Plan.  click here
