CHS PBIS Training

The Colville High School Staff gathered in the library to listen to Dr. Flint Simonsen of Whitworth University speak on Positive Interventions and Behavior Supports known as PBIS. The PBIS center reports, "(PBIS) is an evidence-based, tiered framework for supporting students’ behavioral, academic, social, emotional, and mental health. When implemented with fidelity, PBIS improves social emotional competence, academic success, and school climate. It also improves teacher health and wellbeing. It is a way to create positive, predictable, equitable and safe learning environments where everyone thrives".  Dr. Simonsen has assisted more than 200 schools with PBIS implementation.
