According to the Center of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (;

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based, tiered framework for supporting students’ behavioral, academic, social, emotional, and mental health. When implemented with fidelity, PBIS improves social emotional competence, academic success, and school climate. It also improves teacher health and wellbeing. It is a way to create positive, predictable, equitable and safe learning environments where everyone thrives.

At Vida, PBIS is rooted in our school values.


School values are connected with our schoolwide expectations which are taught, reinforced, and practiced regularly in both English and Spanish

Students earn “Cheetah Links”, individual certificates, classroom recognitions, and class privileges and celebrations for demonstrating Vida Values. These recognitions occur in the moment, throughout the school day, and during quarterly schoolwide awards ceremony assemblies.
