Resource Collection on Positive Behavior Supports, Functional Behavioral Assessment, and School Discipline

Inside this 3-part collection, Parent Centers and other stakeholders will find: an overview of the requirements for functional behavior assessments and positive behavior supports (PBS) in the IEP under IDEA, both proactively and in response to behavioral incidents; and the discipline-related procedural safeguards under general and special education law and court cases, including manifestation determinations. Parent Centers and others can search the collection to identify key strategies, tools, and resources that they can use: when advising and supporting parents around PBS and discipline issues, and when partnering with state agencies on evidence-based strategies to improve performance on discipline-related indicators in the State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report.
