Postive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is widely used in schools because it works.

It makes environments safer, calmer and more effective for learning. Afterschool professionals can leverage this evidence-based framework to make intentional connections to the school day, improve the climate of their program, and increase overall program quality. Rather than waiting for negative behaviors to occur and reacting, afterschool professionals should adopt positive and proactive practices to support students and prevent these behaviors from occurring.
