Family/Community Involvement

What

  • Educating parents/community on what PBiS is and why we are using it
  • Keeping parents/community informed about PBiS efforts within their child’s school
  • Helping parents/community members apply PBiS in their environments

Why

  • When families are involved, students exhibit more positive attitudes and behavior
  • When students report feeling support from both home and school, they have more self confidence, feel school is more important, and they tend to do better in school
  • Student at-risk behaviors such as alcohol use, violence, and other anti-social behaviors decrease as parent involvement increases
