Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based three-tiered prevention framework designed to improve and integrate all data, systems, and practices impacting student outcomes. National research shows that full implementation of PBIS leads to reduced exclusionary discipline and improved student and teacher outcomes.
“Today I will be Respectful, On Task, Accepting and Responsible. I am an Oak Park Panther, hear me R.O.A.R!”
Oak Park School is a FLPBIS Model school! Our school has recently been recognized for our work implementing a school-wide PBIS framework. This award demonstrates our commitment to positive outcomes for all students and helps us celebrate our efforts as we progress toward full implementation of PBIS.
By establishing the PBIS framework, we are developing skills of the students and adults, making system changes to our school environment to enhance school climate, acknowledging appropriate behavior, and using data to identify needed supports for our students and teachers.

ROAR Store: The R.O.A.R Store is every Friday! Students can spend the PAWS they earned throughout the week to spend on items that are donated by staff, parents and business partners. The PAW price stars at 1PAW up to 300PAWS. Each student per grade level is provided the opportunity to shop at the school store during their designated times.

Family Involvement: Including families in PBIS implementation means families and school personnel work together and share in the responsibility making educational decisions and improving student outcomes. Oak Park encourages family involvement in supporting our school wide behavior system. If you are interested in joining our PBIS Team, please email our school’s PBIS Coach.
