WHAT IS PBIS?
Cambridge High School is a PBIS school. PBIS is an acronym that stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. This means we work together to encourage positive behaviors and create a safe environment for all students. PBIS also works to prevent and address problem behaviors.
PBIS is implemented in three tiers. Tier 1 focuses on setting and teaching behavioral expectations in all areas of the school including at recess, on the bus, in the hallway, cafeteria, bathroom, and classroom. Tier 2 and Tier 3 allow educators to focus more closely on the needs of groups or individual students. In these tiers, data is collected on student behavior. This data is then used by administrators and our PBIS teams to reteach appropriate and correct problem behaviors.
