PBIS Videos

PBIS On Demand Professional Learning Series

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports: It Takes the Whole Building videos

The objective of this PBIS video series is to provide information on what PBIS is, how to implement PBIS, and the steps schools/districts need to take to teach expectations, reinforce expectations, make data-based decisions and create a positive culture. These videos can be used in conjunction with your PBIS Team annual training for staff that includes the Why, What, and How PBIS is implemented in your school.

This video series is focused on the fundamentals of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Reflection questions have been provided to prompt discussion after viewing each video. The videos provide information and discussion on PBIS as a decision-making framework. PBIS takes the entire school/district to implement to meet the needs of the whole child and the family. PBIS promotes a safe, supportive and challenging school environment. For students, there is a reduction in challenging behavior and improved social/emotional competencies and academic performance. The needs of staff are also met so there is an increased perception of teacher efficacy and improved organizational efficiency.
