Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive framework of evidence-based strategies and systems that assist schools in creating environments that are predictable, consistent, positive and safe. Benefits include improving academic performance and safety, decreasing challenging behaviors, and establishing a positive school climate for students and staff. PBIS has relevant applications to educating ALL students.  Check out the PBIS Resources site created by SST3.
PBIS Recognition System for 2019-2020

After much consideration and review of the PBIS Recognition System for 2019-2020, the Ohio Department of Education has determined the best approach for moving forward. The plan will permit schools and districts that received recognition last year to continue to receive the same levels of recognition this year.  They do not have to submit any application materials or take any further action.  The PBIS Recognition System application still will be open for schools and districts that voluntarily wish to apply as first-time applicants, those that did not receive awards previously, or those that wish to apply for higher levels of recognition.  

Please see the 2019-2020 PBIS Recognition Plan for further details.
