Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

Bryan County Schools implemented PBIS during the 2015-2016 school year. At that time, we

had nine schools that were participating in the program. Currently, we have all of the Bryan

County Schools participating in this great program. Positive Behavioral Interventions and 

Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based, data-driven framework proven to reduce disciplinary 

incidents increase a school’s sense of safety and support improved academic outcomes. More

than 1,200 Georgia schools and 27,000 nationwide have been trained in PBIS.  Implementation

of PBIS is saving countless instructional hours otherwise lost to discipline. The premise of PBIS

is that continual teaching, combined with acknowledgement or feedback of positive student 

behavior will reduce unnecessary discipline and promote a climate of greater productivity, safety

and learning. PBIS schools apply a multi-tiered approach to prevention, using disciplinary data

and principles of behavior analysis to develop school-wide, targeted and individualized

interventions and supports to improve school climate for all students.
