PBIS: Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports
  • What is PBIS
    It is an evidence-based, proactive, data-driven framework that includes a range of tiered interventions designed to prevent problem behavior while teaching socially appropriate behaviors. The focus of PBIS is creating and sustaining school environments for all students in which appropriate behavior is supported and problem or disruptive behavior is redirected. This culture is created by:

    Defining and teaching behavioral expectation

    Monitoring and acknowledging appropriate behavior

    Providing corrective and appropriate consequences for behavioral errors

    Providing appropriate services for students who need additional behavioral supports

    Using a team-based management system to oversee the PBIS program

    Using referral data for problem solving
