Success For All Students!

 

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based, data-driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents, increase a school’s sense of safety and support improved academic outcomes. More than 22,000 U.S. schools are implementing PBIS and saving countless instructional hours otherwise lost to discipline. The premise of PBIS is that continual teaching, combined with acknowledgement or feedback of positive student behavior will reduce unnecessary discipline and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety and learning. PBIS schools apply a multi-tiered approach to prevention, using disciplinary data and principles of behavior analysis to develop school-wide, targeted and individualized interventions and supports to improve school climate for all students. (OSEP Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports, 2009).
 

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based framework that helps schools design effective environments and supports that, when implemented with fidelity, increase teaching and learning opportunities for all students. The American Heritage Dictionary defines discipline as “training that is expected to produce a specific character or pattern of behaviors, especially training that produces moral or mental improvement.” This is the focus of PBIS. Like reading and math, behavior can be taught and since 2008, Georgia’s PBIS team at the GaDOE has worked with over 40 Georgia district’s involving over 400 schools to prevent or reduce problem behaviors while creating more positive learning environments for all students. Georgia’s PBIS schools report reduced discipline rates and increased learning opportunities in their classrooms. This work involves helping districts build the necessary framework to promote positive outcomes for all students over time.
