PBIS - Positive Behavior Interventions and Support
Positive behavior interventions and support is an application of a behaviorally-based systems approach to enhance the capacity of schools, families, and communities to design effective environments that improve the link between research-validated practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occurs. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining Tier 1 supports (universal), Tier 2 supports (targeted group), and Tier 3 supports (individual) systems of support that improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, work, recreation) for all children and youth by making targeted behaviors less effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional.
"The Loudoun County Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Coordination team, through training and technical assistance, supports schools and alternative placement settings in creating and sustaining comprehensive systems which promote safe, equitable and supportive learning environments across behavior, academic, and social-emotional domains for all of Loudoun County school students.
Our goal is to ensure that all schools have the necessary technical assistance, collaborative opportunities, and evaluative tools needed to implement PBIS with fidelity in non-classroom, and classroom areas; to address the targeted needs of individual students, while providing support to teachers, students, and families."
