What does Positive Behavior Support look like in Delaware?

The DE-PBS Project is a collaborative project with the Delaware Department of Education, the University of Delaware Center for Disabilities Studies, and Delaware Public Schools. This statewide initiative is designed to build the knowledge and skills of Delaware educators in the concepts and practices of Positive Behavior Supports (PBS).

A three-tiered approach is utilized to develop positive learning environments and prevent problem behaviors. The first tier, School-wide PBS, uses universal strategies implemented throughout the school to support the positive behavior of all students.  The second tier applies additional strategies for students who need more support at this targeted level.  For the remaining approximately 5% of students who do not respond to universal and targeted strategies, individualized supports are developed at the third tier.

The DE-PBS Project is guided by 10 Key Features.
