prioritize utilization of evidence based behavioral interventions

Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports is a system approach to creating safer and more effective schools. PBIS focuses on improving a school’s ability to teach and support the positive behavior of all students. The PBIS Leadership Team designs, implements, and evaluates specific school-wide practices that are for ALL students and ALL staff. PBIS is not a program or curriculum. It is a team-based process for systemic problem-solving, planning, and evaluation.

School-wide PBIS is being implemented today in schools throughout the United States. Each of these schools invests in training on PBIS practices, forms a school-based leadership team that coordinates implementation on student outcomes (Sugai&Lewis-Palmer, 2005).

PBIS is an evidence-based practice that enhances the capacity of schools to educate all students, especially students with challenging social behaviors. It is a proactive systems approach to school-wide discipline that responds to the current social and/or educational challenges through three levels of intervention: universal, targeted-group, and individual intensive.
