Positive Behavior Support (PBIS)

The Watson Institute provides school based consultation, training and support of the Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) model.

PBIS is based on proactive principles with the goal of teaching desired behaviors, reinforcing and recognizing students who are able to model the desired behaviors, and providing systems to support students who struggle with compliance or may present with more challenging behaviors.  PBIS is more than a ‘behavior plan”.  When implemented with consistency, this approach not only improves and sustains social and emotional well-being of students; it also improves and sustains academic achievement.

PBIS provides:

  • PBIS consultation, development and support
  • Training for administrators and staff
  • Classroom coaching
  • School safety evaluations
