Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS)

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports Facts

Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports is a broad framework of systemic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes in school communities while preventing problem behavior. The key attributes of PBIS include preventive activities, data-based decision making, and a problem solving orientation (Horner, 2000; Lewis & Sugai, 1999; Sugai, 2000; Weigle, 1997).

Consistency in encouraging expected behaviors and discouraging infractions is provided through:

  • Incentives and Reinforcement
  • Logical consequences and clear office referral procedures
