PBIS is an organizational framework designed to provide a multi-tiered continuum of effective supports to all students to promote positive academic and social/behavioral outcomes for all students. This framework has been developed by national experts in the field of PBIS over many years and includes four core features: systems, data, practices and outcomes.


PBIS Maine supports districts, schools and community-based organizations in developing sustainable systems of evidence-based practices that promote the behavioral, social-emotional and academic growth of all children.
