The premise of both PBIS and Respectful Discipline is that continual teaching, modeling and reinforcing of the positive behavior will reduce discipline problems and promote a climate of greater learning and safety.
Respectful Discipline will go one step further to ensure that students work toward being internally motivated, not just externally motivated, and that students learn to work as a team in reaching their goals. PBIS identifies several key features in schoolwide processes and practices that support children’s positive behavior.
Respectful Discipline’s approach offers a wealth of practices that match these features. Using the Respectful Discipline can therefore help your school implement PBIS successfully.
