Improving student academic and behaviour outcomes is facilitated when all students have access to the most effective and accurately implemented instructional and behavioural practices and interventions possible. PBS provides an operational framework for achieving these outcomes. It is a decision-making framework that guides selections, integration and implementations of the best evidence based practices for improving academic and behaviour outcomes for all students.
PBS builds a continuum of supports for staff and students. At each level there is an emphasis on outcomes in the form of agreed expectations for student and staff behaviour, and data to guide decision making about what practices should be put in place to support student learning and social behaviour.
