What is Antigo Pride? What is PBIS?
The Unified School District of Antigo is proud to announce that we are now a member of the PBIS network. PBIS, or Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, is a framework of supports designed to maximize academic engagement and achievement for all students. It includes proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate behaviors in order to create a positive environment in our schools and in our community.
Why do we need PBIS in Antigo?
PBIS has had much success throughout our nation and we are excited to implement these interventions and supports in our District as well. The ultimate goal of PBIS is to increase academic performance, improve school safety, decrease problem behaviors, and establish a positive school culture. The expected outcomes from PBIS will not only affect our schools, but will flow into the homes of our students, as well as, our community.
