Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
PBIS is a fundamental support program with a purpose of encouraging positive behavior in schools to promote success in the classroom environment. PBIS is a collective system implemented by instructional staff, non-instructional staff, and administration, that encourages a culture of positive behavior. The premise of the program’s effectiveness is heavily influenced by clearly stated expectations of what positive behavior looks like within the school day. This encompasses both school-wide and individualized classroom expectations.
