What is PBIS?

PBIS is a district wide program that stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports. PBIS is a proactive approach to discipline. We teach students our expectations for the school setting then positively reinforce them for meeting them.


At Smedberg, we want students to show GRIT – or the tenacity to preserve when something is difficult. GRIT also stands for the qualities we want our students to exhibit – Growth Mindset, Responsibility, Integrity, and Thoughtfulness.


When staff members see students “showing GRIT” they reward them with virtual “Smeddy Bucks” through our PBIS Rewards Program. Students can redeem these points for privileges, items at the student store, tickets to events, raffles and more.
