  1. How can my school become a PBIS school?
    There is an application process for schools to apply. We will be accepting 10 new schools for the 2017-18 school year. The application process includes: (1) attending the principal information session (April 2017), (2) submitting PBIS application (May 2017), (3) notification of acceptance (June 2017).
  2. What is Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)?

    PBIS is an evidence-based, cost-effective, systems approach for establishing the social culture needed for schools to be effective learning environments for all students. PBIS eliminates barriers to learning, creates and maintains a safe and effective learning environment in schools, and ensures that all students have the social and emotional skills needed to succeed in school and beyond. It helps schools teach students expected behaviors and social skills, creates student behavioral health and academic support systems, and applies data-based decision-making to discipline, academics, and social/emotional learning. School-wide PBIS (SWPBIS) uses the three-tiered approach of universal interventions (for all students and settings), secondary interventions (for students who are at-risk), and tertiary interventions (for individual students needing specialized assistance).
