Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) has long recognized PBIS as the premiere collection of evidence-based practices that make schools more effective and equitable learning environments. Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a process-based, problem solving model aimed at preventing and correcting inappropriate behavior through teaching and reinforcing appropriate behavior. Housed within the framework of Response to Interventions (RtI), PBIS first focuses on building core behavior and disciplinary practices that are implemented school-wide and, secondly, offer a range of interventions that are systematically applied to students based on their demonstrated level of need. SESC supports districts and schools as they explore, implement and maintain PBIS within their RtI frameworks.
