Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an educational framework that uses novel, proactive approaches to discipline, learning, and student-teacher interaction within schools. PBIS is an approach for creating a safer, more positive school environment. Through PBIS, educators learn how and when to use proactive, evidence-based positive behavioral interventions, rather than reactionary measures, throughout both the school and within the classroom in a way that supports students both academically and socially. The goal of PBIS is to create a positive, beneficial environment for students, teachers, and school staff. PBIS is built on research-based, proven techniques; every decision in the approach is based in data.
