The PBIS framework helps schools create a positive culture, by encouraging positive behaviors and providing a framework for evidence-based interventions.

Many teachers and principals use ClassDojo to implement PBIS school-wide. Learn more below about how ClassDojo supports three key PBIS principles.

Creating a positive school culture

PBIS helps schools set consistent expectations across all classrooms, like "Helping others" and "Making good choices." Teachers can add these expectations to their classes in ClassDojo and then give specific, positive feedback to students

Teachers can give neutral feedback in ClassDojo to guide students toward classroom expectations. To provide more details on what happened, teachers can add notes describing the rationale and intervention taken. This makes ClassDojo very useful as a PBIS Tier 1 intervention system.

With a mobile app and simple collaboration features, ClassDojo helps educators encourage PBIS expectations throughout the school campus, like art class, the playground, and the library.

Capture and share important data for PBIS

A counselor, teacher, or school leader is often appointed as a PBIS coordinator, tasked with gathering all feedback data to ensure all students are succeeding. ClassDojo makes it easy to download and share all feedback points given to students as a spreadsheet. Teachers can also invite the PBIS coordinator to share their class, so they can see in real-time how students are progressing.

Improve family engagement

Teachers can easily get parents involved in their PBIS program, too, using ClassDojo. Parents can see their child’s feedback in real-time, message privately with teachers, and also see photos and videos from the classroom. Parents can connect using any iOS/Android device or computer.
