Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports 


Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

PBIS is a three-tiered model of prevention and intervention. PBIS takes a proactive approach in address existing behavior concerns on school campuses. Additionally, this model reinforces social and problem-solving skills through praise, rewards, and incentives.

The goal of PBIS is to improve each school's ability to build positive and productive learning environments for all students and staff. Research on PBIS shows that effective implementation can lead to improved attendance and academic achievement, reduced office discipline referrals, and suspensions. 

This model provides schools with a framework for the support services that they can provide students. Below is a brief summary of each tier.
