We have prepared a detailed article on the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) system, for a professional magazine for employees of school counseling centers. ČOSIV is currently piloting PBIS in three Czech schools.
In this article, we describe in detail the first of three tiers of interventions used in the PBIS system:
Tier 1 (main content of the article) – preventive support with a set of recommended procedures and steps for all pupils and employees in the school
Tier 2 – more intensive support in small groups and shorter time intervals, aimed on 10 – 20% of students
Tier 3 – individualized intensive intervention for pupils with severe behavioral problems, aimed on 1 – 5% students
In the article are described also other measures that are used in PBIS. For example, how to organize the classroom environment, what routines to implement in schools, and how to define expected school behavior for students.
