California Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports
promoting safe and equitable learning environments
School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (SW-PBIS) is a multi-tiered prevention framework guiding the implementation and sustainability of evidence-based interventions to meet the academic, behavior and socio-emotional needs of all students. Schools implementing PBIS Tier I supports for all students prevent the development and/or exacerbation of behavior challenges, increase the occurrence of pro-social skills and enhance the overall school culture. The use of school-wide, targeted group and individual student outcome and fidelity data is used for decision-making and action planning.
School-wide PBIS is a preventive and inclusive approach to equitable education for all students. Since it is our belief all students can develop the social and academic skills needed to become successful citizens, it is then our responsibility to create equitable and inclusive environments where all students can practice and become fluent with the necessary social and academic skills for a successful transition into their adult lives.
