Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support (PBIS)
OverviewPositive Behavioral Intervention and Support (PBIS) is a nationally recognized framework for shifting school culture from punitive to culturally responsive and positively reinforcing. Students and staff work to collaborate in targeted school-wide positive behavioral expectations which are culturally informed and positively reinforced throughout the school day. Minor and major disciplinary infractions are clearly specified as well as associated interventions designed to teach, re-teach, and reinforce the skills needed to meet positive expectations. Nationwide data on schools implementing PBIS indicate an average of 50% reduction in disciplinary events. PBIS was selected for Oakland to address the disproportionate referral of African American students for Special Education and for suspension.Please click the images below for PBIS implementation resources:Which schools are implementing PBIS?
PBIS Cohort schools are reflective of school sites that focus on decreasing the disproportionate referral of African American students for Special Education and for suspension. If you represent a school site and are interested in PBIS for the upcoming school year, please contact Barbara McClung our Director of Behavioral Health, or your Regional Mental Health Program Manager.
