PBIS at Knapp Elementary


PBIS = Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports 

Purpose of PBIS: to support a school community in which everyone demonstrates positive behavior and experiences learning success.

Together staff, students, families, and community members will teach, practice, model, and recognize our three school-wide expectations- also called ‘Cardinal Pride’.

Be Responsible

Be Safe
