LPS Positive Behavior Interventions and Support


School-wide PBiS is a system of supports that include proactive strategies, for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments.


Lincoln Public Schools is currently in a 5 year plan to fully implement Positive Behavior Interventions and Support in all elementary, middle, and high schools.  Lincoln Public Schools has implemented Tier 1 in all schools (Preschool-12).  The following Tier 1 critical elements are in place:

  1. School-wide PBiS Team
  2. Faculty/staff commitment
  3. School-wide expectations and rules developed
  4. Plans for teaching expectations/rules
  5. Acknowledgement program established
  6. Effective procedures for dealing with problem behaviors
  7. Data entry and analysis plan
  8. Classroom systems
  9. Evaluation
  10. Implementation plan

School teams have all established a building internal coach who will lead their PBiS efforts.  The PBiS teams have a district coach assigned to assist with implementation.  Lincoln Public Schools have also been extremely fortunate to collaborate with consultants from the Midwest PBiS Network.

At _______, we strive to create a positive partnership with families and communicate the supports we have in place. Behavioral health and academic success connect to learning inside AND outside of school. Through this partnership, a positive impact can been seen in academic and behavioral growth. A few ways we can enhance this important partnership between school and home include talking about the importance of learning with your child, praising their efforts, and recognizing improvements both academically and behaviorally.
