PBIS AT DRE

PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. We have a very well developed PBIS system at DRE. Our big ticket system allows whole classes to earn rewards for positive behaviors. This year, we’ve replaced the ‘little tickets’ with ‘Mule Money’ to reinforce positive individual behaviors. Students will be able to collect and spend their Mule Money as they wish using their teacher’s list of rewards.

In addition, we are implementing a PBIS Student of the Month for each classroom. Please see the link for more information. Our first students of the month will be chosen in October.

We will use this Behavior/Consequences Rubric to determine consequences of unwanted behaviors.
