As the Northeast regional partner to the National Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), established by the U.S. Department of Education, May Institute offers technical assistance and consultation to implement school- and district-wide Positive Behavior Support strategies across school systems. These services promote student achievement by improving the school’s behavioral climate.
PBIS — Improving Learning and Behavior
Effective behavioral interventions can be catalysts for positive change in the classroom. PBIS is a proven, systems-focused approach that produces numerous positive outcomes, including:
Decreases in problem behaviors, office referrals, and suspensions
Increases in on-task engagement and academic achievement
Higher levels of satisfaction with the overall school climate among students, teachers, and parents
The comprehensive, systemic, and individualized continuum of positive behavior support is designed to provide opportunities for all students, including those with significant emotional and behavioral issues, to achieve social and academic success. PBIS enhances the capacity of schools, districts, and states to adopt and sustain effective behavior and academic support practices.
May Institute’s Positive Schools program offers a more intensive model of PBIS that includes ongoing consultation and collaboration.
