2019-2020 Training Information

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a framework of evidence-based behavioral practices and systems integrated into a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS). Over twenty years of research have shown that when implemented with fidelity, schools can expect the following outcomes:

  • Learning environments that are less reactive, aversive, dangerous, and exclusionary
  • Learning environments that are more engaging, preventative, responsive, and productive
  • Positive impacts on classroom management and disciplinary issues
  • Increases in restorative environments for all students
  • Improved  supports for students who need more specialized assistance (e.g., emotional and behavioral disorders, mental health)
  • A maximization of academic engagement and achievement for all students

OCDE is recognized as a California regional center for technical assistance for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Thus, OCDE is committed to providing professional development that supports Orange County school districts and schools in implementing PBIS with fidelity within their Multi-Tiered System of Support in accordance to the Implementation Blueprint from the National Technical Assistance Center for PBIS and the California MTSS Framework. In order to best meet the needs of districts and schools, Readiness Commitments and Requirements will be applied.
