PBIS Services

As the Northeast regional partner to the National Technical Assistance Center on PBIS, May Institute offers technical assistance to both schools and districts regarding PBIS. The goal of these services is to promote student achievement by improving the school’s behavioral climate.


Effective behavioral interventions can be catalysts for positive change in the classroom. PBIS is a research-based, systems-focused approach that produces positive outcomes, including:

  • Decreases in problem behaviors, office referrals, and suspensions
  • Increases in on-task engagement and increased instructional time
  • Higher levels of satisfaction with the overall school climate among students, teachers, and parents

PBIS services can be funded through federal resources, such as Title I, IDEA, Safe Schools, state resources such as Massachusetts Tiered System of Support (MTSS) grants, and local resources through the school district.
