What is PBIS?

PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports) is a system for creating safer and more effective schools. The process focuses on improving the school’s ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students. PBIS includes implementing school-wide procedures and processes for all students and staff in all settings. It is an approach to create a safe and productive learning environment where teachers can better instruct and all students can learn.
