PBIS & Behavioral Expectations

What is PBIS? 

PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports. The goal of PBIS is to encourage positive behaviors which will increase instructional time and improve student achievement.  Elba Elementary School has been implementing the program for five years.  Our intentional focus on positive reinforcement is creating and maintaining a positive school climate for the students and teachers.

We believe that Lancers can lead the way by being respectful, responsible, and safe.  Therefore, our students are explicitly instructed on how to be respectful, responsible, and safe.  Students who display these behaviors are reinforced through our PBIS Rewards system, in which they can receive points to later cash in for prizes.  Students who go above and beyond in any of these areas may also be recognized on weekly announcements and at whole building assemblies.


Below are our Lancer Behavioral Expectations:
