Overview Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS)
What Is PBIS? “A decision-making framework that guides selection, integration, and implementation of the best evidence-based academic and behavioral practices for improving important academic and behavior outcomes for all students.” —National Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, US Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs
A Few Myths about PBIS • Give kids candy so they will behave. • Have lots of parties. • There should never be a consequence.

Universal Interventions • Address the needs of approximately 80–90% of the students • Includes • physical environment • procedures • rules • rigorous instruction
Targeted Interventions • Address the needs of approximately 10–15% of the student population • Interventions are individually designed to address behavior and/or academics
Intensive Interventions • Students who require the most resources to address behavior and academics • Require intense individualization of services • Are usually less than 1–5% of the population
Key Points to Remember • PBIS is not a curriculum. • PBIS focuses on prevention of problem behavior and environmental reengineering. • PBIS utilizes a three-tiered problem-solving approach.
