Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) are being  implemented in over 16,000 schools across 47 states, and Maine had a 90% increase in PBIS schools last year! PBIS has a large and ever growing research base demonstrating positive outcomes including but not limited to  increased academic achievement and academic engagement, decreased  time spent addressing problem behavior, improved positive school climate,  and reduction in administration of consequences for problem behaviors such as detentions and suspensions. PBIS is not a packaged curriculum, but an  approach made up of essential elements that can be implemented a variety  of ways.
