PBIS in the Classroom

Classroom PBIS strategies are important tools to decrease disruptions, increase instructional time, and improve student social behavior and academic outcomes , which is critical as schools are held to greater accountability for student outcomes and teacher effectiveness.

Although individual teachers may implement PBIS in their own classrooms regardless of the broader school context, the effects of classroom PBIS strategies are maximized by
(a) implementing within a school-wide multi-tiered behavioral framework, like school-wide PBIS; (b) directly linking classroom and school-wide expectations and systems;
(c) merging classroom PBIS strategies with effective instructional design, curriculum, and delivery; and
(d) using classroom-based data to guide decision making. The following school- and classroom-level supports should be in place to optimize the fidelity and benefits of implementation.
