NDMTSS - Behavior

PBIS refers to Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support, which encompasses “a range of research-based strategies used to increase the quality of life and decrease problem behavior by teaching new skills and making changes in a person's environment” (APBS, 2014). 

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support combines; valued outcomes, behavioral and biomedical science, validated procedures, and systems change to enhance the quality of life and reduce problem behaviors 

Developing Schoolwide Behavior Expectations - Tier 1

PBIS Tier 1 Problem-Solving

Schools will plan for the identification and teaching of school-wide expectations of behavior. Develop plans for active supervision, problem behavior identification, classroom management, data collection, and data systems. Upon completion, schools will have identified gaps in current practice and have an action plan for steps to improve practice in their building.

PBIS: Supplemental Support System Training – Tier 2

Training is in a redesign phase, but typically would cover the critical features to support supplemental interventions (tier 2) within a multi-tiered system, data review, and barrier busting.  

Tier 2 supports build on the lessons proved at Tier 1 and, may prevent the need for more intensive interventions.  Tier 2 supports are provided to small groups or students with similar needs, offering more time and/or detailed instructions on the core curriculum.
