What is a continuum of PBIS?

PBIS schools organize their evidence-based behavioral practices and systems into an integrated collection or continuum where students get supports based on their response to intervention.

 A three-tiered prevention logic requires that all students receive supports at the universal or primary tier. If the behavior of some students is not responsive, more intensive behavioral supports are provided, in the form of a group contingency (selected or secondary tier) or a highly individualized plan (intensive or tertiary tier).
