Positive Behavior Interventions and Support

  •   Positive Behavior Interventions and Support

    Antioch CCSD 34 has adopted Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) as the framework for implementing a culture of discipline conducive to learning. 

    Research shows us that positive reinforcement is one of the best ways to not only change problematic or unexpected behavior but also to encourage and maintain expected behavior. 

    Every school in Antioch School District 34 has developed a matrix listing the behavior we expect from students in all common locations of the school building (displayed below).

    Hillcrest Elementary School   






    These rules are taught systematically and explicitly by staff within the first two weeks of school and following prolonged school breaks. Students are recognized for displaying appropriate behavior at a high rate and corrected for inappropriate behavior in a re-teach model. Students who continue to display inappropriate or unsafe behavior will be referred to the office per the school board discipline policy. Data is kept on office referrals to monitor location, time, frequency, and problem behavior. This data is used to help guide re-teaching, reinforcement schedules, and guide decision-making.
