Positive Behavior Support (PBIS)
Kindergarten-12th, Leadership, DPI
PBIS training provides systematic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes while preventing problem behavior with all students. Training is conducted with school teams that are representative of the staff at their home schools. By training school teams in the principles and practices of PBIS, schools are able to design a system for teaching and encouraging respectful & responsible behaviors, use data to support decision making and continuous improvement, and create an individualized total school climate that supports staff and student behavior and encourages family engagement. The team attends three two-day-each modules to learn the information needed to begin PBIS implementation at their school. They assign team roles, determine effective data management strategies and begin to build a repertoire of behavior management skills. The team determines how to integrate the use of research-based behavior strategies in their school setting to decrease negative behaviors while increasing positive behaviors and student achievement. For more information about training dates and locations, interested schools should contact the PBIS regional coordinator for their area listed on the linked page.
