Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS)

Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports

School-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) is a system of tools and strategies for defining, teaching, acknowledging appropriate behavior, and correcting inappropriate behavior. It is a framework for creating customized school systems that supports student outcomes and academic success. PBIS is for the whole school, it is preventative, and it changes the paradigm of focus from negative behaviors and exchanges to positive expectations and interactions.
