Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based three-tiered framework with practices and systems to establish a foundation of regular, proactive support while preventing unwanted behaviors. PBIS is implemented school wide to promote positive, predictable, safe environments for everyone in all school settings.
The Ohio PBIS Network was initiated by the Ohio Department of Education Office for Exceptional Children to develop materials, resources and training to support the scaling up of PBIS in Ohio schools. The Ohio PBIS Network is primarily composed of professionals from each of the 16 Ohio State Support Teams, Educational Service Centers and the Office of Integrated Student Supports.
The Gallia Vinton ESC has two staff members trained in school wide and early childhood PBIS: Thad Haines
