State Recognizes Wake County Schools for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports
The NC Department of Public Instruction recently honored select Wake County schools for implementation of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS strives to build favorable school climate and increase academic learning time. PBIS is a nationally recognized research-based best practice designated by the U.S. Department of Education as one of the “Ideas that Work”. A responsibility of school-based PBIS Teams is to empower adults within a school with the skills needed to improve overall classroom and school climate to achieve higher academic performance for all students. Implementation is supported by Intervention Services/Student Support Services.
