Welcome to the Delaware PBS Website!

Who We Are

Our Vision:
The Delaware Positive Behavior Support (DE-PBS) Project proudly serves as a technical assistance (TA) center for the Delaware Department of Education to actualize the vision to create safe and caring learning environments that promote the social-emotional and academic development of all children. The statewide initiative provides professional learning and coaching to Delaware educators to implement Positive Behavior Support (PBS) as a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS). Learn more about who we are or explore PBS/MTSS foundational resources.

Our Equity Mission Statement:
At the Delaware Positive Behavior Support Project, we are committed to improving outcomes for each student. Educational systems cannot be considered effective until they are effective for all students. A Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) can be a force for dismantling systemic racism and promoting equity or serve to perpetuate oppression. In recognition that black lives matter and given centuries of oppression, violence, and segregation, we must increase our commitment to improving outcomes for Black, Indigenous, and other Students of Color. PBIS teams embed equity into their implementation of all aspects of MTSS. Learn more about our community beliefs and practices here.

What We Do

The PBS framework builds schools’ capacity to implement evidence-based practices to achieve desired outcomes. At each tier, the focus is on systems to support practices and data to guide and monitor implementation.
