In the fall of 2010, Bristol School began the process of implementing a positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS) initiative. We refer to this initiative as the Bristol BE's. Full implementation is a 3-5 year process. It is well known that schools are successful when they help children grow academically, socially, and emotionally. For this to happen, it is imperative that we have a safe environment that is supportive and conducive to growth. By setting forth clear social and behavioral expectations, it is our goal to create an atmosphere for learning.
