PBIS kickoff at the MS/HSPositive Behavioral Interventions and Supports - PBIS

Promoting positive behavior and increase learning


Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, or PBIS, means more time for learning and less spent on discipline at DCS.

PBIS is a research-based framework that helps schools reduce behavioral problems and maintain a safer learning environment where teachers can teach and students can learn.

As an overall approach rather than a curriculum, PBIS involves the active participation of all school staff, students and their families.

PBIS teams in the elementary and high schools work toward the goal of having all staff teach, model, support and reward positive and appropriate behavior. The teams emphasize PBIS' use in classroom management and in providing supports for students needing more assistance.

Numerous schools, both locally and nationally, have documented their success with PBIS, experiencing fewer disciplinary referrals and suspensions and spending more time on academics and learning.

 PBIS was launched in Duanesburg in fall 2013 by teams of teachers, administrators and staff working with the Capital Region BOCES CAPIT program as part of an ongoing effort to provide students with the best possible learning environment.
