What is PBIS

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a multi-tiered, systems framework for establishing a positive learning environment in which all students can be successful. PBIS is rooted in evidence-based practices and data-based decision making.  All school staff implement a continuum of social and behavioral supports which increases the likelihood of behavioral and academic competence for each and every student.

Benefits of PBIS

The benefits for children and families include: Reduction in problem behavior, increased student engagement, improved academic performance and better family involvement. The staff benefits include: Improved consistency across faculty, better collaboration in support of individual students, improved classroom management, and more.

Participation Requirements

PBIS training is free and open to all Kentucky schools and is appropriate for all grade levels.  Successful implementation of the PBIS framework is typically a 3–5 year process that involves on-going training across a continuum of behavior support and/or revisions to a school’s PBIS action plan.  To learn more about implementing PBIS in your school or district, visit our Getting Started and Resources Pages.
