Positive Behavior Intervention and Support


Welcome to our page that provides you with Mt. Diablo High School’s PBIS updates. 


What is PBIS?  PBIS is an acronym for Positive Behavior Intervention and Support.  As a PBIS school, MDHS has a school motto that states the three main expectations of students at school.  The school motto is “Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Ready to Learn.”  As a PBIS school, we also strive to create an overall positive school climate where students want to follow expectations, do their part and be an active member of the school community. 

PBIS Big Ideas

  • Create a school climate where EVERYONE feels welcome, wanted and important
  • Increase consistency across staff and student in understanding behavioral expectations
  • Increase the ratio of positive to negative interactions throughout the school
  • Decrease the use of punitive and exclusionary discipline; focus on alternatives to suspension and expulsion
  • Focus on what we can change
    •  Redefining the environment to enable students to be academically and behaviorally successful
  • Do the smallest things that have the biggest impact
    • If it’s working, don’t change it
    • If it’s NOT working…be honest and be humble---listen
  • Maximize our resources though data-based decisions and research based practices
  • Successful individual student behavior support is linked to host environments or school climates that are effective, efficient, relevant, and durable (Zins and Ponti, 1990).
