PBIS 2017 08 18 at 11.20.08 AM

Why implement PBIS?

The goal of PBIS is to prevent problem behaviors by encouraging students to choose appropriate behaviors
Accordingly, when PBIS efforts are implemented well:

  • Student behavior success rates reliably increase while behavior problems, office referrals and disciplinary actions reliably decrease
  • Students feel more positively toward their teachers, administrators and schools
  • Students feel safer in their schools
  • Teachers spend less time correcting behavior and more time delivering academic instruction
  • Students spend less time removed from instruction due to disciplinary action, and more time participating in instruction activities
  • Academic outcomes improve
