Positive Behavior Interventions and Support

  • The Goal of PBIS is to enhance the capacity of schools to educate all students, especially students with challenging behaviors, by adopting a sustained, positive, preventative, and instructional approach to school-wide discipline and behavior management.  This approach focuses on giving priority to teaching and encouraging positive school-wide behavioral expectations, and increasing school capacity to support sustained use of empirically validated practices.
