Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS)

Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) is an approach to supporting students to be successful in schools.  PBIS was developed from research in the fields of behavior theory and effective instruction. PBIS supports all students through intervention ranging from a school-wide system to a system for developing individualized plans for specific students. School-wide PBS focuses on the development and implementation of pro-active procedures and practices to prevent problem behavior for all students and improve school climate.

Please refer to the Edison PBIS Handbook for more information on the program.
