The successful applicant will enter into a cooperative agreement to establish and operate a National Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support (PBIS). The Center will assist schools in developing a framework that will help students remain engaged in instruction and improve academic outcomes for students with and without disabilities. A PBIS framework helps to improve behavioral and academic outcomes by improving school climate, preventing problem behavior, increasing learning time, promoting positive social skills, and delivering effective behavioral interventions and supports.
