Positive Behavior Supports in School Initiative (PBSIS)
School Wide Positive Behavior Support is not just another school improvement initiative. It is a school-wide movement of positive interventions designed to improve the school climate. The PBSIS philosophy centers around the belief that by identifying, recognizing and rewarding positive behaviors, schools can change their culture, becoming more inclusive. Schools across the country have seen dramatic improvements in overall discipline and behavior problems as a result of implementing PBSIS programs.
