The presence of parents in schools not only provides additional academic supports but also creates community and cultural connections. In many schools, family participation in the school-wide positive behavior support process is growing. Family members are part of state, district, and school planning teams and participate in school-wide activities in a variety of ways. Family members participate in the assessment and problem solving process to create individualized positive behavior support plans for their children.

This helpful resource from the Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports answers these important questions:

  • How are families involved in positive behavior support?
  • What are key characteristics of schools with high family involvement in school-wide PBIS?
  • How are families involved in individual PBIS planning?
