It is based on the concept of increasing interest in learning. Each student is assigned a unique student ID, which functions like a debit card. When a student completes assignments in the PBIS initiative space, rewards are awarded. Engagement in education is assessed and recorded within the system.

PBIS levels are not reward levels and are only indirectly related to them. The levels are determined by the amount of attention given to a particular student's behavior.

This is a basic level to support school culture and prevent non-positive behavior. The level is available to all students throughout the school.

This level is designed to monitor the behavior of students with more severe behavioral problems or more complex adjustment situations (transitioning from another school, moving from another country, student's disabilities). 

Level 3 provides individualized support to improve the progress of individual students.

The system is divided into interconnected sectors:

  • Students
  • Teachers
  • Administrators
  • Parents

Each sector of the system has its own set of tools and conveniences to accomplish tasks.

Reward systems within PBIS vary:
