Behavior & Classroom Management
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive classroom and school environments.
At NKCES, we focus on utilizing Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to support Northern Kentucky students. We also recognize that many Kentucky students have a mental health diagnosis/need or traumatic life event for which they need support. Our supports focus on positive, research-based interventions and supports and using a data-informed decision making process to support all students in our preschool and P-12 classrooms.
Great teaching starts with a strong classroom management plan that is based on positive behavior supports. We support the use of CHAMPS, Universal Design for Learning, differentiation, and direct/ explicit instruction to support the learning of students with disabilities in inclusive classrooms.
