What is PBIS?

 One of the foremost advances in school-wide discipline is the

emphasis on school-wide systems of support that include proactive

strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student

behaviors to create positive school environments.

- Instead of using a piecemeal approach of individual behavioral

management plans, a continuum of positive behavior support for all

students within a school is implemented in areas including the

classroom and non-classroom settings (such as hallways, buses, and

restrooms).

Attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary (school-wide),

secondary (classroom), and tertiary (individual) systems of support that

improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, work,

recreation) for all children and youth by making targeted behaviors less

effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional.
