Positive Behavior Support

Positive Behavior Support (PBS) gives people a new way to think about behavior.

PBS is based on understanding why problem behaviors occur - the behavior's function.  This approach to behavior can occur on a school-wide level, in a specific setting, classroom or with an individual student.  

 

PBS is the application of evidence-based strategies and systems to assist schools to increase academic performance, increase safety, decrease problem behavior and establish positive school cultures.  

     

PBS provides a positive and effective alternative to the traditional methods of discipline.  PBS methods are research-based and proven to significantly reduce the occurrence of problem behaviors in the school, resulting in a more positive school climate and increased academic performance.  

 

PBS is consistent with the individuals with Disabilities Education Act, which advocates the use of positive behavior interventions and school-based disciplinary strategies that reduce or eliminate the need to use suspension and expulsion as disciplinary options.
