What is PBIS?
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based three-tiered framework for improving and integrating all of the data, systems and practices affecting student outcomes every day. It is a way to support everyone-especially students with disabilities-to create the kinds of schools where all studens are successful. PBIS is a commitment to addressing student behavior through systems change. When implemented well, students achieve improved social and academic outcomes, schools experience reduced exclusionary discipline practices and school personnel feel more effective.
