Why School-Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Support?
School-wide positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS) is a systemic framework for addressing challenging behaviors within schools. The goal is to increase the academic and social behavior outcomes for all students. School-wide PBIS is the behavioral part of the Response to Intervention (Rtl) triangle that is currently implemented in more than 10,000 U.S. schools.
PBIS is not a “packaged curriculum” or geared toward “rewarding” students. Depending on the local culture and the needs of the school, school-wide PBIS plans adapt to fit the context and can look different across districts or even schools. School-wide PBIS is a prevention-oriented approach to school-wide discipline. It is a framework that focuses on the use of evidence-based practices and solid, effective data-based decision-making to improve academic and social contexts. The four-tiered approach provides additional interventions for students as their behavioral/social needs increase.
Why Attend the Southeast Conference on Positive Behavior Interventions and Support?
The Southeast Conference on Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) is a two and a half day annual conference that provides training for schools and districts for developing school-wide behavioral intervention plans. During this year’s conference, participants will have the option of choosing from four strands for PBIS implementation. Sessions will emphasize preventing school-wide challenging behaviors, teaching desired school-wide behaviors and routines and ensuring consistency among staff. At the completion of the conference, teachers will have plans and the materials necessary for the effective and efficient implementation
