What is PBIS?  PBIS is a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes 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, and (c) maximize academic and social behavior outcomes for students.  PBIS supports the success of ALL students.  PBIS, often referred to as a Multi-Tiered System of Support for Behavior (MTSS-B), provides a framework for academic and behavioral support as indicated in the triangle below.

All Staff in our school are expected to actively participate in the following 4 Components of PBIS:
