Positive behavioral support is an approach to enhance the capacity of schools, families, and communities. PBIS improves the link between practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occurs. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary (school-wide), secondary (classroom), and tertiary (individual) systems of support that provide positive results (personal, academic, health, social, family, work, recreation) for all children and youth by making desired behavior more functional, and problem behaviors less effective.
As part of the state accountability system, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) produces report cards for every district and school in Wisconsin.
Assessment is used to monitor student progress. In the classrooms, teachers provide a variety of experiences that will help students practice the skills necessary to help them learn and apply their knowledge in order to demonstrate their understanding.
There are a variety of assessments that are used in the district in order to monitor the progress of individual students, track student growth, and evaluate the success of the school and district. Some of these assessments are required by the state, others are part of district efforts to monitor and evaluate progress.
In all cases, assessment results are used by teachers, schools and the district as part of an established protocol of continuous improvement. Individual student needs are recognized and evaluated. Student growth is compared to expected growth and districtwide growth is measured to evaluate successes and plan for the future.
