Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)Top of Page

PBIS Handbook

Mission:  An optimal environment for students to achieve their personal best is one that provides consistent behavioral expectations for everyone. The school climate is one of mutual respect where everyone conducts himself or herself such that all feel safe and free from harassment, both physical and emotional.


Chico Country Day School is dedicated to creating a (mission). It is expected that students will conduct themselves in such a fashion that everyone will feel safe and free from physical and emotional bullying or harassment. It is an expectation that students will follow directions whether given by administrators, teachers, substitutes, classified staff (including campus supervisors) and any adult employed by CCDS. Parent volunteers are greatly valued and we rely on them for their commitment to helping our schools and students. Student discipline is an area that our parent volunteers are not involved in. If a parent volunteer has concerns about student behavior, they will confidentially communicate with the appropriate CCDS employee.

CCDS has implemented the PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions Support) Program, in our school. The main focus of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is to provide a clear system for all expected behaviors at CCDS. While many faculty, parents, and students have assumptions of what is expected behavior, we cannot assume that everyone’s beliefs are similar. Through PBIS, we will work to create and maintain a productive, safe environment in which ALL school community members have clear expectations and understandings of their role in the educational process.

Our school-wide Positive Incentive Program benefits ALL students who follow our school-wide expectations. PBIS focuses on positive behavior. Students are taught, and rewarded for following the expectations in all areas of the school. Students must be problem solvers, act responsibly, work hard, and show respect in and out of the classroom.

CCDS’s Behavioral Plan will apply to students (EC 48900):

• while on the school grounds
• while going to or from school
• during lunch
• during or while going to or from any school-sponsored activity
• during any other event related to school activities or attendance.

Respect and courtesy for persons and property is expected at all times. Where a specific penalty for violating a rule is not listed, the consequences assigned will be in proportion to the severity of the infraction.
