Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports

     Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports is a decision-making framework that guides selection, integration, and implementation of the best evidence-based behavioral practices for improving important academic and behavioral outcomes for all students. 
     It is a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) developed to promote positive, safe, and supportive school climates for ALL students by clearly identifying positive behavioral expectations and explicitly teaching the desired behaviors to students.  PBIS is NOT a curriculum, intervention, or practice.  It is a three-tiered model that focuses heavily on school-wide core features.

Tier 1: Universal, Primary Prevention (All)

Tier 1 systems, data, and practices support everyone – students, educators, and staff – across all school settings.

Tier 2: Targeted, Secondary Prevention (Some)

Tier 2 supports get an added layer of systems, data, and practices targeting their specific needs.


Tier 3: Intensive and Individualized, Tertiary Prevention (Few)

At Tier 3, students receive more intensive, individualized support to improve their outcomes.
