What is PBIS?

Vermont Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (VTPBIS) is a state-wide effort designed to help school teams form a proactive, school-wide, systems approach to improving social and academic competence for all students. Schools in Vermont are engaged in using a formal system of positive behavioral supports in their schools. Involved schools who implement PBIS with fidelity and integrity see a dramatic decrease in the number of behavior problems experienced in their schools. Additionally, students in these schools enjoy greater levels of support and inclusion than those in comparative schools who do not use a system of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. To learn more about the Continuum of School-wide Instructional Positive Behavior Supports visit

Each year more and more Vermont schools are actively implementing systems of PBIS in their schools. If you are interested in implementing PBIS in your school, find out more and get started.
