Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
Be Sincere, Be Supportive, Be Dedicated
"The SSD Way"
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional and academic success. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary (school-wide), secondary (classroom), and tertiary (individual) systems of support for all students.
PBIS IS NOT a packaged curriculum, scripted intervention, or manualized strategy.
PBIS IS a prevention-oriented way for school personnel to:
(a) organize evidence-based practices
(b) improve their implementation of those practices
(c) maximize academic and social behavior outcomes for students. PBIS supports the success of ALL students.
