What is PBIS?


Our BMES PBIS Team's mission statement is:


“We believe that by creating and consistently teaching behavioral expectations for all students, we can create and maintain a nurturing learning environment that results in quality instruction and success for all students.”


Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based, data-driven
framework proven to reduce disciplinary incidents, increase a school’s sense of safety and
support improved academic outcomes. More than 22,000 U.S. schools are implementing PBIS and saving countless instructional hours otherwise lost to discipline. The premise of PBIS is that continual teaching, combined with acknowledgement or feedback of positive student behavior will reduce unnecessary discipline and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety and learning. PBIS schools apply a multi-tiered approach to prevention, using disciplinary data and principles of behavior analysis to develop school-wide, targeted and individualized interventions and supports to improve school climate for all students.
