What is PBIS?

  • Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a research based, proactive system-wide framework for creating and maintaining safe and effective learning environments in schools, and ensuring that all students have social skills needed to ensure their success at school and beyond.



    How does PBIS work at Toll? 


    Toll is working toward using the philosophy of PBIS to guide how we establish expectations for Titan behavior, reinforce great choices and correct unsuccessful behaviors. We use our Titan Tenets of Sucesss, Respect, Cleanliness, Punctuality and Service to guide our expectations and to teach and support successful behavior. Students can earn Titan Tickets for modeling the Tenets throughout the day. Weekly drawings are held for prizes ranging from Toll Malt Shop bucks, special privileges like preferred seating at lunch and snack, front of the line passes and Toll gear.


    All schools in Glendale Unified will be using the PBIS model by the end of next year. Schools have been trained in different phases with the final group beginning in the fall of 2017.
