Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports



Creating opportunities for success.  Every student, every classroom, every day. 



Fall River School District will achieve its vision by:

  • Creating opportunities to build deeper relationships among the Fall River School Family beyond the academic setting
  • Modeling, practicing, promoting, and internalizing appropriate, positive behaviors through diverse approaches in order to be respectful, responsible, and safe
  • Sharing various examples of individual successes in order to motivate positive, future life choices.



The Fall River School District has adopted Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) to help create and maintain a positive school climate and an effective learning environment within the school.  PBIS is a series of strategies designed to promote academic achievement and behavioral competence by teaching the expectations for appropriate behavior in all areas of the school environment.  By reducing behavioral interruptions, PBIS creates an effective learning environment where teachers can teach and students can learn. The goal is to buy back classroom curriculum time so teachers spend less time on class disruptions.  Evidence shows student academic growth in districts where PBIS is well implemented.
