Positive Behavior Supports

Behavior is an important and valuable component of the education process. Parents play a key role in supporting their child’s behavioral success. Understanding the ABC’s of behavior and working in conjunction with the teachers can help instill appropriate behaviors in all aspects of your child’s life.  Parents can reinforce their child’s behavior at school while in the home setting. This allows for consistency in teaching children appropriate behavior while in the home and school setting.

 


 

As California deepens the implementation of the common core state standards, one key aspect of this is the increased focus on preparing students to be active learners. To be effective learners, Students need to manage their behavior just as they need to develop their academic skills and abilities. Focusing on preventative strategies in addressing maladaptive behavior will position children to be ready to learn. This will support students in developing the requisite skills, knowledge and ability to be prepared for college and career.

The national IDEA (2004) Response to Intervention (RTI) model identifies the need for a balance of academic and behavioral system to lead to a successful instructional program. By addressing behaviors in a preventative and proactive approach, children will be able to fully access the core curriculum and interact with their peers in a meaningful way.
