This booklet has been prepared for families and community members to provide information about the use of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) in their local schools. It describes PBIS and outlines how it supports student success in school, at home, and within the community.
The PBIS framework gives schools the tools to focus on important student outcomes, integrate related practices and initiatives, engage positively and preventively with students and parents, and use data to provide contextually and culturally related implementation. This publication illustrates the consistency between the PBIS framework and the structure established under Public Act 11-232.
The State Education Resource Center (SERC) provides information, research tools, and professional development about best practices to better prepare educators and other service providers to meet the needs of all Connecticut students. The issue of SERC Works describes the experience of the Hartford Public Schools with PBIS.
The purpose of this publication is to summarize the goals, outcomes, and needs of Connecticut’s Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports Initiative (PBIS)
Performance Measure 1 measures the number of Connecticut schools that have received training in PBIS, Performance Measure 2 measures the percent of CT schools sustaining implementation of school-wide PBIS with fidelity and Performance Measure 3 measures the average number of office discipline referrals (ODRs) per day per month from Connecticut PBIS schools.
