Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a comprehensive framework that guides school and district teams on implementing support systems to achieve academically and behaviorally important outcomes for all students. The multi-tiered approach promotes adopting a continuum of evidence-based practices, effectively using data to make decisions, and using a team-based instructional approach to prevent behavioral problems.
Education Service Center-Region 19 offers training for school-based teams following the National Technical Assistance Center on PBIS model that supports the development of sustainable systems over a three-year training period. The three-year training process, a reflection of research of systemic change, offers the opportunity for schools to build lasting, flexible structures to address challenging needs over time. As a result of participation, school-based teams increase their capacity to select and monitor practices, effectively use data as a guide for decision-making and build multi-tiered systems of support for all students, staff and families in the school and community. This academy will offer different strands of PBIS based on where the teams are with implementation based on the Benchmark of Quality (BoQ) and Team Implementation Checklist (TIC) scores.
