Representatives from the Federal Commission on School Safety travel to Hebron-Harman Elementary School in Maryland on Thursday, May 31, for a field visit to learn about Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS is a framework for assisting school personnel in organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions to help improve academics and social behavior outcomes for students.

While onsite, Commission representatives will hear from nationally renowned PBIS expert Dr. George Sugai, as well as Anne Arundel County Public Schools administrators, teachers and students about the district’s PBIS program. This is the first of several field visits where the Commission will learn from practitioners in the field who are actively taking steps to improve school safety and climate.

The Commission will host three different types of events in the coming weeks and months - Commission meetings, field visits and listening sessions. Dates, times and location information will be made available as events are scheduled.
