Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
PBIS is a proactive approach schools use to improve school safety and promote positive behavior. The focus of PBIS is prevention, not punishment.
It calls on schools to TEACH positive behavior strategies, just as they would teach any other subject - like reading or math. In schools that use PBIS, all students learn about positive behavior. This includes kids with IEPs and 504 plans.
PBIS recognizes that students can only meet behavior expectations if they know what the expectations are. Everyone learns what’s considered appropriate behavior. School personnel use a common language to talk about it throughout the day in all settings, including at lunch and on the bus.
