Positive Behavior Interventions and Support PBIS Universal Team January 25, 2011
If a student cant read…we Teach! If a student cant do math…we Teach! If a student cant behave…we give time outs, send to the office, suspension (in and out), punish!
Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) What is PBIS? A broad range of proactive, systemic, and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes in safe and effective environments while preventing problem behavior with all students (Sugai, 2007) This is done through teaching, re-teaching, and acknowledgements for positive behavior.

Four Elements of PBIS: Systems – efficiently and effectively support implementation of supports, services, and interventions for students at the Universal (Primary), Secondary (Selected), and Tertiary (Targeted) level Data – used for decision making to determine appropriate interventions Practices – positive teaching and reinforcement strategies at school-wide, classroom, and individual levels Outcomes – academic and behavior targets that are endorsed and emphasized by students, families, and educators and are supported, evaluated, and measured by data
