School Climate and Discipline
The School Climate and Discipline Team uses the CR-PBIS Framework (Culturally Responsive Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) to support the development of classroom and school culture where each and every student knows they belong in an academic and socially engaging school community. The team supports teachers and school leaders in partnering with families and communities around the climate and culture of schools.
CR-PBIS is a multi-tiered proactive and instructional approach to discipline that integrates restorative practices through a racial lens.
PPS is committed to establishing this in all schools across the district. When fully implemented, this multi-tiered approach can reduce suspensions, decrease disproportional discipline rates, improve school climate, increase teacher effectiveness, and support better educational outcomes for all students.
