  • Helping parents/community members apply PBiS in their environments

Why:

  • When students report feeling support from both home and school, they have more self confidence, feel school is more important, and they tend to do better in school
  • Student at-risk behaviors such as alcohol use, violence, and other anti-social behaviors decrease as parent involvement increases
