What is PBIS and Why Do We Implement PBIS in our McDuffie County Schools?
PBIS is a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.
PBIS IS NOT a packaged curriculum, scripted intervention, or manualized strategy.
PBIS IS a prevention-oriented way for school personnel to (a) organize evidence-based practices, (b) improve their implementation of those practices, and (c) maximize academic and social behavior outcomes for students.
We use PBIS in our Schools because it is EVIDENCE BASED and DATA DRIVEN. PBIS has proved time and again that, when implemented with fidelity and consistency, it can reduce disciplinary referrals, increase school safety, improve school climate, and support improved academic outcomes for ALL students.
