The PBIS team at CBER UConn is co-directing the National Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). On this $32.6 million U.S. Department of Education grant, the team at the University of Connecticut is serving as one of the lead institutions that supports SEAs, LEAs, and schools to establish, scale-up, and sustain the PBIS framework. Brandi Simonsen and the PBIS team at CBER are supporting the implementation of PBIS in northeastern states as well as leading activities regarding promoting school climate and documenting PBIS implementation in high schools and high-needs districts. Please see a news article on UConn Today to learn more about this grant.
