What is PBIS?

Sun Valley Middle School received State Recognition for their participation in the PBIS program for the year 2013-2014. With that being said, Sun Valley Middle School is proud to be a PBIS school.

PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, and is an amazing program geared toward achieving desired behaviors from our students through positive means. The main and most basic principle of our PBIS program is that you can reinforce positive behaviors through recognition and appreciation. One way students are rewarded for their positive behaviors are with tickets. These tickets can be used for many things, such as: purchasing prizes, paying for an entry to a dance, paying for an entry to PBIS celebrations, having dress down days on Fridays, and winning prizes through weekly school-wide drawings.
