Vermont Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports
What is PBIS?
Vermont Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (VTPBiS) is a statewide effort designed to help school teams form a proactive, school-wide, systems approach to improving social and academic competence for all students. Schools in Vermont are engaged in using a formal system of positive behavioral supports in their schools.
Resources for Schools and Administrators
The Vermont State BEST (Building Effective Strategies for Teaching Students with Behavioral Challenges) Team supports VTPBiS implementation in Vermont schools statewide. Each year more and more Vermont schools are actively implementing systems of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports in their schools. Please refer to www.pbisvermont.org for
the most recent and updated VTPBiS information in Vermont.

Resources for Parents and Families
The Vermont Family Network (VFN) works with the agency
to bring families information about VTPBiS and the many
benefits for children and schools. VTPBiS is a
decision-making framework that guides selection,
integration, and implementation of the best evidence based
practices for improving academic and behavioral outcomes for all students. VTPBiS is being implemented in
many Vermont schools, to varying degrees; from awareness
and readiness levels to full implementation that includes
school wide planning, to small group interventions, to
individual plans. For questions,
