About PBIS for Parents

 PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Support. It is a program designed to teach respect, responsibility, and safety at school. We at Lowrey MS hope to encourage students to continuously make good behavior choices through this program.

PBIS provides teachers and other school staff with information to help prevent behavior problems and make school a safe learning environment.

Research shows that the use of PBIS in school has resulted in increased time for instruction. It also increases positive behaviors school wide, and decreases disruptive behaviors.

Thanks to a grant from Wayne RESA we are able to hang posters that highlight behavior expectations in all areas of the school. We can give rewards to students who are observed showing consistently respectful, responsible, and safe behaviors.
