Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive framework of evidence-based strategies and systems that assist schools in creating environments that are predictable, consistent, positive and safe. Benefits include improving academic performance and safety, decreasing challenging behaviors, and establishing a positive school climate for students and staff. PBIS has relevant applications to educating ALL students.
Characteristics of PBIS schools include:
  • Common purpose and approach to discipline
  • Clear set of school-wide behavioral expectations
  • Procedures for teaching school-wide expectations
  • Continuum of procedures to encourage appropriate behavior and discourage inappropriate behavior
  • Ongoing monitoring and evaluation procedures
