PBIS Framework & Clymb


What is PBIS?

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a multi-tiered, evidence-based framework for adopting and organizing behavioral supports for all students. PBIS focuses on increasing positive behavioral outcomes for all students and thereby improving school climate, social competencies and academic achievement.

The PBIS framework includes multi-tiered support for students:

  • Tier 1: Universal
  • Tier 2: Targeted
  • Tier 3: Intensive & Individualised


How does SEL fit within the PBIS framework?

SEL (Social and Emotional Learning) aligns with PBIS in creating safe and supportive environments allowing students to improve behaviors & academic performance and learn important skills. While PBIS emphasizes increasing positive behavior, SEL empowers students by building competencies to navigate the world effectively. They both often achieve similar outcomes and hence schoolwide SEL can be integrated into PBIS frameworks as a Tier 1 intervention.
