Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based practice that puts structures in place that help staff determine behavior expectations, teach the expectations directly, and develop positive and negative consequences.

The consistency provided by a PBIS matrix creates a more positive school culture and helps to meet the needs of everyone in a school, including students with disabilities, and subsequently enhances the learning environment.

This PBIS Tier I training will provide participants with the essential elements for introducing and implementing PBIS. Topics covered include:

  • exploring school-wide attitudes regarding behavior
  • evaluating what is currently in place for behavior intervention
  • choosing next steps

Attendee Expectations

Participants will:

  • discover why their school/district needs PBIS
  • begin to develop a new PBIS matrix (or modify an existing matrix)

    • develop 3-5 expectations
  • create an action plan for next steps to full PBIS implementation
