What is PBIS?

PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) is an evidence-based, tiered framework designed to support students’ behavioral, academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs. It’s not a curriculum; rather, it’s a fundamental system that benefits students, school staff, and families as they work together to promote positive behavior changes.

Here’s why PBIS is important:

Student Success: PBIS helps create a positive school environment where students can thrive. By teaching and reinforcing expected behaviors, PBIS initiatives contribute to better academic outcomes and overall student success.

Prevention and Early Intervention: PBIS focuses on preventing challenging behaviors before they escalate. By providing consistent support and clear expectations, schools can address issues early and reduce the need for more intensive interventions.

Collaboration: PBIS involves collaboration between families, educators, and the community. When everyone works together, we create a strong support system for students, ensuring their well-being and growth.

Equity: PBIS ensures that all students receive fair and equitable support. By valuing diverse perspectives and involving families, schools can tailor interventions to meet individual needs.

Remember, PBIS is about creating a positive school culture where everyone—students, families, and staff—can thrive
