What is PBIS?

  • Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) provides a positive and effective alternative to the traditional methods of discipline and gives teachers a new way to think about behavior.


  • PBIS methods are research-based and proven to significantly reduce the  occurrence of problem behaviors in school, resulting in a more positive school climate and increased academic performance, increase safety, decrease problem behavior, and establish positive school cultures.


  • PBIS advocates the use of positive behavior interventions and school-based disciplinary strategies that reduce or eliminate the need to use suspension and expulsion as disciplinary options


  • PBIS is based on correcting negative behaviors with positive rewards.
