More About PBIS

Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) is a system for creating and sustaining a positive school climate by achieving important social and learning outcomes. Implementation of PBIS enables schools to: establish a positive behavioral culture in which all students can experience success, reduce behavioral disruptions in the school, and create a safe and effective learning environment to enhance student achievement.

The focus of PBIS is to invest in prevention using strategies that include:

  • Clearly defining the behaviors expected in all school settings.
  • Actively teaching students the expected behaviors and purposefully modeling expectations.
  • Using a system to acknowledge students' appropriate behavior.
  • Establishing corrective procedures that are consistent across school settings for disruptive behaviors.
  • Providing additional support for students with more intensive social and behavioral needs.
  • Using a data collection system to help guide decision-making.
  • Utilizing student voice to positively impact the climate and culture.
