Positive Behavior Support (PBS)

Positive Behavior Support is a behaviorally-based systems approach. It is designed to enhance the capacity of schools, families, and communities to create effective environments that improve the link between research-validated practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occur. A major advance in school-wide discipline is the emphasis on school-wide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments.
