    Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS)

    Tolleson Union High School District utilizes PBIS at each of our campuses. PBIS is a mindset of building community based on a set of shared values and expectations for behavior. Students are recognized for positive behavior in attempts to reinforce a positive culture and climate for every student in our schools. Please contact your site intervention specialist if you have any questions about PBIS at your school.

The broad purpose of PBIS is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and equity of schools. PBIS improves social, emotional, and academic outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities and students from underrepresented groups.” - PBIS.org
