…that the SOARS framework aligns with PBIS?

Download

Many schools are implementing Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS focuses on establishing positive behavioral expectations and collecting teacher generated behavioral data to assess students’ behavioral support needs. SOARS complements PBIS by collecting student-generated data on physical and emotional safety concerns and promoting restorative resolutions of those concerns before they escalate.
