PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. PBIS is a positive, proactive approach to dealing with behavior. Students are given a clear set of expectations based upon behavioral goals chosen by the staff and administration. Find out how PS17 is using the PBIS program. I am sure you have seen the RISE logo all around school this year and that is because this program is very important for our children at PS 17. Please encourage your children to do their best and earn the tickets thus reinforcing the hard work that is happening at the school both by the children and all the staff.
