May Institute is 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.
In that capacity, we offer technical assistance and consultation to implement school-wide and district-wide Positive Behavioral Intervention Support strategies across school systems. These services promote student achievement by improving the school’s behavioral climate.
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.
