Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based/three-tiered framework to improve and integrate all of the data, systems, and practices affecting student outcomes every day. PBIS is the integration of many effective strategies and programs that create a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) for behavior, and focuses on teaching students how to achieve expected outcomes and prevent problem behaviors from taking place.

"I am extremely proud that these schools are recognized for the creative ways they recognize students and staff and continue to teach expectations on campus and through the digital platform to ensure student success."
