    What is MBI?

    The Montana Behavioral Initiative (MBI) is a proactive approach in creating behavioral supports and a social culture that establishes social, emotional, and academic success for all students MBI is an organized, data-driven system of interventions, strategies, and supports that positively impact school-wide and individualized behavior planning (OPI website).


    CS Porter staff teaches all students academics and social behavior skills which creates a predictable and positive learning enviornment for everyone.  All Staff must teach, practice and acknowledge students who are following the school-wide expectations (Respectful, Responsible and Safe).  School-wide expectations are located in the common areas and teachers post their classroom expectations in their class to help remind students of CS Porter's expectations.
