NOTE – Laker Elementary School integrates Positive Behavior Support (PBS) in each classroom and school-wide. PBS is a research-based, multi-tiered behavioral system of support that focuses on both prevention and intervention. It has been shown to improve school climate, reduce bullying behaviors as well as other problem behaviors. We will teach, practice and reinforce desired behaviors that lead to academic and social success.
