Due to the current global COVID-19 crisis and its financial impact on many schools and organizations, we have decided not to reschedule the 10th annual Southeast Conference on Positive Behavior Interventions and Support, originally scheduled for June 8-10. Our decision to cancel the conference for 2020 is not an easy one but we look forward to seeing everyone again in 2021!

What is School-Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Support?

School-wide positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS) is a systemic framework for addressing challenging behaviors within schools. The goal is to increase the academic and social behavior outcomes for all students. School-wide PBIS is the behavioral part of the Response to Intervention (Rtl) triangle that is currently implemented in more than 10,000 U.S. schools.

PBIS is not a “packaged curriculum” or geared toward “rewarding” students. School-wide PBIS is a prevention-oriented approach to school-wide discipline. Depending on the local culture and the needs of the school, school-wide PBIS plans adapt to fit the context and can look different across districts or even schools. It is a framework that focuses on the use of evidence-based practices and solid, effective data-based decision-making to improve academic and social contexts.

Why Attend the Southeast Conference on Positive Behavior Interventions and Support?

The Southeast Conference on Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) is a two-and-a-half day annual conference that provides training for schools and districts for developing school-wide behavioral intervention plans. Our five-tiered approach provides additional interventions for students as their behavioral/social needs increase.

During this year’s conference, participants will have the option of choosing from five strands for PBIS implementation. Sessions will emphasize preventing school-wide challenging behaviors, teaching desired school-wide behaviors and routines, and ensuring consistency among staff. At the completion of the conference, teachers will have plans and the materials necessary for effective and efficient implementation.
