PBIS methods are research-based and proven to significantly reduce the occurrence of problem behaviors in school, resulting in a more positive school climate and increased academic performance.

PBIS is a 3-tiered model of behavioral instruction and intervention designed to provide students the proper intensity of support based on need. School-wide or Tier 1 PBIS includes 10 critical elements which schools implement as their core behavioral curriculum. The resources provided below are designed to assist with implementing School-wide PBIS to build and sustain a safe, inclusive and positive school environment for all students, staff, and families.
BCPS staff can access Tier 1 Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) resources by going to the our PBIS SharePoint page.
PBIS is a systematic framework to build a positive culture and community in classrooms and schools. It uses team-based planning and problem solving to implement evidence-based, positive behavioral interventions. The goal of PBIS is to support student achievement and success, while decreasing inappropriate student behaviors. PBIS calls on schools to overtly teach students behavior, just as they would teach any academic subject—like reading or math.
