FREE Overview of School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
What is School-wide PBIS? This FREE introduction to Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports for school and district administrators, school psychologists, counselors, intervention specialists, and teachers will include an overview of research-based assessment and intervention practices that school teams apply using a three-tiered systems prevention model. We will review specific steps schools and districts should take to become “ready” to implement PBIS, which will increase sustainability and the development of local capacity.
Will School-wide PBIS work in my school? PBIS has been successfully implemented at all grade levels in over 28,000 schools across the country to improve academic outcomes and establish safer school environments. After attending this session, you will understand how PBIS strategies could be successfully implemented in your school or district.
Invest resources wisely. Federal ARRA and Massachusetts Department of ESE grants emphasize the need for schools to invest money and resources in sustainable multi-tiered systems of instruction. PBIS can be sustained effectively with limited district oversight by developing local capacity.
Find out how your PBIS approach can address Bullying Prevention, SEL, Restorative and Trauma-based practices.

Summary: Investing in SW-PBIS has led to improvements in student learning and social behavior. By engaging in the process of data-based decision making to identify research-based practices and building the systemic supports for educators along a continuum, schools can create environments that prevent problem behavior and increase the likelihood that students will engage in appropriate behavior. Critical to success is the administrator’s active role in supporting the school-based team process.
