What Are the Different Levels of School-Wide Support?

Schools that use PBIS create and maintain supports to meet the needs of all students.  These supports are based on the understanding that specific behaviors need to be taught, not just expected.  However, even with PBIS in place, about 5-10% of students will need additional support to be successful.  A continuum of support is described below.

1. Universal systems of support (school-wide behavior support):  Behavioral support is provided for ALL students throughout the school.  These supports might include:
  • Social skills instruction
  • Positive discipline that is proactive
  • Behavior expectations that are taught
  • Active supervision and monitoring
  • Positive reinforcement
  • Fair and corrective discipline
  • Parent collaboration

2.  Small Group Systems of Support: This level of support provides additional help for 10-15% of students who need more support.  Interventions are more intensive and are for a smaller number of students.  They are often provided in small groups and include,
  • Individual academic support
  • Intensive social skills instruction
  • Functional behavior assessments (FBA)
  • Behavior intervention plans (BIP)
  • Supervision and monitoring
  • Interagency collaboration
  • Intensive collaboration with family
  • Intensive family-based interventions, when appropriate
