Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a school-wide system to assist students in behaving in a socially appropriate manner.  The Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Team is responsible for helping staff and students  implement our school-wide expectations. Our PBIS Team consists of teachers across content areas and grade levels, our social worker, school counselors, administration and other Tillotson staff. We are working to expand our team to include subcommittees of a few parents and students.  

PBIS at Tillotson is a tiered system of preventative interventions that support our student’s academic and emotional success. When implemented at the school level, PBIS provides a clear system for all expected behaviors. Through PBIS we work together to create and maintain a productive and safe environment in which all Tillotson school community members clearly understand the shared expectations for behavior. Through positive recognition and continual teaching of expectations, all students will experience academic and social growth.   

The PBIS Team works with the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network, PaTTAN, and has achieved and maintained Tier 1 & 2 Fidelity. The team is working on achieving Tier 3 during the 2023-2024 school year.
