PBIS & Student Support

At Woodland, we are proud to be respectful, responsible, and safe!  Woodland is working hard to earn recognition by the California PBIS Coalition (CPC) for our successful implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS).  The CPC began a recognition system in 2016 to acknowledge schools for implementing PBIS with fidelity to the national framework. Schools may apply to be recognized as Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum PBIS schools.  While Woodland has many systems in place that are a part of this research-based approach to student behavior, we are now strengthening and expanding our program to earn official recognition.  This year, we are striving for "Gold" and in the coming years we will continue to work towards "Platinum"!

What is PBIS? 

PBIS is an evidence based, three tiered system to improve and integrate data, systems, and practices affecting student outcomes every day. Tier 1 practices and systems establish a foundation of regular, proactive support while preventing unwanted behaviors. These universal supports are provided to all students, school-wide.  Tier 2 practices and systems support students who are at risk for developing more serious problem behaviors before those behaviors start. These supports help students develop the skills they need to be successful at school.  In Tier 3, students receive more intensive, individualized support to improve their behavioral and academic outcomes. At this level, formal assessments may be used to help determine a student’s need.
