“Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive systems approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.”

At Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School, our system of supports include proactive strategies to define, teach, and sustain appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments. A continuum of positive behavior support for all students is implemented in all areas including the classroom and nonclassroom settings (such as hallways, restrooms, lunchroom, and playground). The climate of each learning community is different; therefore at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the expectations we have adopted to strengthen our culture of learning are to be respectful, responsible, and ready.
