PBIS Rewards Parent Support Video Transcription
Your student’s school is utilizing PBIS Rewards to support its PBIS initiative. That sounds great, but what is PBIS?
PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports. It seeks to reduce or eliminate poor behavior schoolwide through the encouragement of positive behaviors. PBIS decreases office discipline referrals, increases instructional time, and improves student achievement. This intentional focus on positive reinforcement is creating and maintaining a positive school climate for the students and teachers.
Now, how does PBIS Rewards help with that?
PBIS Rewards is a digital platform that allows our staff members to recognize any student, anywhere for meeting behavior expectations. These behavior expectations are defined by the school then communicated and taught. So, when your student displays the behavior that is expected, they are recognized for it. The points earned through that recognition may be used to purchase items from the school’s PBIS store.
How does that benefit you as a family member?
As a family member, you can monitor your student’s progress and stay engaged with the PBIS Rewards Family App! Download it for free on Google Play, the App Store, or Amazon Apps. Adding your student is simple. You’ll receive an email or letter with a QR code from your school. Open the PBIS Rewards Family App and scan this QR code. If you have multiple students using PBIS Rewards at their school, you will be able to add each one separately.
Once your student is added to your PBIS Rewards Family App, you will be able to see how many points they have earned, which teacher rewarded them, and how they’re spending their points. The App also has a convenient way to respond to messages sent by your child’s teacher.
Plus, if the school is using our Advanced Referral System, you will be able to see if your student receives any discipline referrals.
PBIS Rewards is helping your student’s school create a positive climate in which every student can learn and grow academically, socially, and emotionally. The PBIS Rewards Family App is a great tool for you to stay connected and engaged with the PBIS initiative. If you need more information, contact a PBIS administrator at your child’s school.
