Continuous Improvement of Schools

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS): An Administrator’s Overview Description: Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a research validated approach to discipline which emphasizes the creation of proactive systems of support for students and staff. Schools using the PBIS framework for school-wide discipline develop a comprehensive system for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors that results in measurable increases in indicators of positive school climate and decreases in student office referrals. This overview workshop will inform school level administrators about the critical elements of the PBIS framework, the research supporting PBIS, and what would be involved in applying the PBIS framework to your school. You will also hear about a training program that guides school-based teams through the development and implementation of the PBIS framework.
