What is Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)?

PBIS is a research-based framework that has been proven to improve school climate, reduce problem behavior, and increase academic instructional time in schools (for additional information go to www.pbis.org). PBIS establishes the social culture and individual behavior supports needed for students to achieve both social and academic success while preventing problem behaviors. PBIS is based on the idea that when students are taught clearly defined behavioral expectations and provided with predictable responses to their behavior, both positive and corrective, all students are more likely to meet those expectations.
