Playworks is proud to have partnered with a special group of 2016-17 California Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Coalition Coalition Implementation Award winners who extended PBIS to the playground by creating a safe, inclusive environment for all students to participate in a physically active recess period.

PBIS is a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes. It emphasizes that student management and preventive school discipline be integrated into a positive and safe school climate.
