About the Midwest PBIS Network
The Midwest PBIS Network at SASED, in partnership with the OSEP funded National PBIS Technical Assistance Center, supports the implementation of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) in state, local, and community agencies throughout the Midwest. The Network is committed to building capacity of schools to prevent problem behaviors, promote positive school culture, and to evaluate the impact on both social and academic success of all youth, including those with the highest level of need. Critical to the support of school level implementation is the Network’s investment in parallel processes for local and state agencies to support PBIS implementation and scale-up with integrity and impact. Key focus areas of the Midwest PBIS Network include:
Prevention-based school-wide systems of positive behavior support
Data-based decision-making for instruction of behavior and academics
Wraparound planning for students with complex emotional and behavioral needs and their families
Community-based supports for families, youth and schools
In collaboration with the National PBIS Technical
Assistance Center, the Network also establishes and evaluates model
demonstrations of PBIS implementation, such as the integration of mental
health and restorative justice supports into the PBIS framework.
Additionally, the Midwest PBIS Network coordinates the annual PBIS
National Forum, and serves as a technical assistance hub to nine states.
