Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS)

What is School Wide Positive Behavior and Intervention Supports (PBIS)?

PBIS is a systems approach or process, not a specific curriculum. Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support Programs provide a whole school process for teaching socially appropriate behaviors in order to optimize academic achievement for each student. Whole School Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support is a systematic approach that establishes and reinforces clear behavioral expectations. It is a team-based system involving the entire school staff and must have the ownership of teachers, administrators, families, and students. The school staff must adopt a common approach to discipline that is proactive, instructional, and outcome-based. The data about the school is used to guide decision-making. The school team looks at the entire school campus and the whole school day. The goal is to help educate all students, even students with challenging behaviors.

The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction is promoting the use of school-wide positive behavior support to improve behavioral and academic success in all North Carolina Schools. A DVD and a brochure have been developed in collaboration with ECAC and will tell you more about this initiative.
