Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) is a school-wide system of support that includes proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behavior to create positive school environments. Individual schools identify a Positive Behavior Support Team that collaborates with the district’s Positive Support personnel to support behavioral and academic success for every student.More information about PBIS is available at www.ncpublicschools.org/positivebehavior/.
