The Midwest PBIS Network (MWPBIS) is a national research, grant, and direct-funded organization housed at West 40 ISC #2 in Illinois. Our primary charge is to function as a hub of the Center on PBIS, a national technical assistance partnership funded from the U.S. Department of Education. The Center's model of capacity building emphasizes a cascade of implementation to assist state departments of education in the installation, fidelity, outcomes, and sustainability of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and integrated social-emotional-behavioral initiatives (SEB learning). We encourage you to also access local technical assistance from your state and region. Learn more about the Midwest PBIS Network...
