Positive Behavior Support and Intervention

What is PBIS? Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a decision-making framework that guides selection, integration and implementation of the best evidence-based behavioral practices for improving important behavior outcomes for all students. PBIS is not a curriculum, intervention or practice, but instead is a collaboration between district and school staff in designing behavioral support systems at each tier of an RtI2 system.

How does PBIS support Schools: 

  • Evidence-based approach for establishing a positive social culture in schools that involves systemic and individualized behavior support strategies for achieving social and learning outcomes while preventing problem behavior in all students.

  • The framework includes many evidence-based features:

    • Prevention focus

    • Team-based implementation

    • Continuum of intensive, individual interventions

    • On-going collection and use of data for decision making

    • Arrange consistent consequences for problem behavior

    • Acknowledge positive behavior

    • Define and teach positive social expectations


Elementary, Middle and High Schools including their YEP Programs, provide instruction and activities for students to develop their skills as Allies. Students deepen their empathy for the students who are hurt by bullying langauge. Students strengthen their abilities to address the bullying language of their peers and to act more thoughtfully about including any one who might seem islolated. Students participated in data talk lessons analyzing their own student survey results, created and participated in assemblies and student workshops, and decorated their schools with poetry, and art projects.  No Name Calling Week: Building A Community of Allies is part of a comprehensive program to build Safe, Inclusive and Respectful schools inclusive of all our diversity.
