Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based framework. PBIS operates in a three-tier system. The framework is used to bring together the data, systems, and practices that affect student outcomes every day.
Tier I: Practices and systems establish a foundation of regular, proactive support while working to prevent unwanted behaviors. School Staff provide universal supports to all students in the school.
Tier II: Practices and systems support student who are at risk for developing more problem behaviors. School Staff use specific supports to assist students in developing skills to help them be successful in school.
Tier III: Students receive more intensive, individualized support to improve their behavioral and academic outcomes. At this level, school staff rely on formal assessments to determine student needs.
