PBIS is a general education initiative, supporting all children and youth.

The OSEP Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports defines PBIS as: a decision making framework that guides selection, integration and implementation of the best evidence-based academic and behavioral practices for improving important academic and behavior outcomes for all students. In general, PBIS emphasizes four integrated elements: data for decision making, measurable outcomes supported and evaluated by data, practices with evidence that these outcomes are achievable, and systems that efficiently and effectively support implementation of these practices.


The Ohio General Assembly has passed House Bill 318 which mandates PBIS implementation and training in all buildings serving students pre-Kindergarten through grade three. State Support Team 16 is excited to announce that we offer a variety of training methods to ensure that districts within our region meet the November 2, 2021 deadline for PBIS training/implementation. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we fully understand that many districts are restricting in-person professional development. For this reason, we have created a 100% virtual training option.
