Positive Academic Behavioral Support (PABS) is an option on a continuum designed to meet the diverse needs of students with significant behavioral and emotional disabilities.
The goal is to assist students in developing skills that will enable them to successfully participate in the general education setting and in society by improving self-esteem, confidence, and personal social skills.
Individual behavioral interventions are designed to meet the unique needs of students with a strong focus on academic instruction that facilitates both access and ability to participate in the grade level Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
Should you have any questions or concerns about the PABS program, please feel free to contact our office for further assistance.
Elementary Supervisor: Darby Ahlfinger
Secondary Supervisor: Kecia Adams-Wright
Each campus has a Special Education Supervisor who will assist parents and answer specific questions regarding student programs or concerns.
Note: During a school closure for extended time away from school special education services will continue to be provided virtually as determined by the student's ARD committee.
