Minnesota PBIS Schools

Our first PBIS training in Minnesota was offered to schools in 2005. Our inaugural two-year training cycle included a cohort of nine schools from three school districts. Our initial cohort included elementary, middle and high schools. Since then, the numbers and types of schools participating in training and continued implementation has grown, including urban, suburban, rural, pre-K through 12 schools and programs. (See map at the bottom of this page.)

As of August 2020, 803 Minnesota schools are in training or have completed our two-year cohort training. Our initiative now includes 39% of Minnesota schools, which impacts over 378,000 students, or 43% of our students.

To locate schools in your area with exemplary PBIS practices, contact your Regional Implementation Project coordinators.
