The purpose of this literature review was to examine the behavioral framework Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports and the effects it has on a school climate. A specific interest was the impact of behavioral strategies on individual students and overall school climate. The question is how can schools positively impact students’ behavioral changes while also improving the school environment. As a whole, studies support that when school personnel implement PBIS with fidelity, school-wide expectations established, and behavioral strategies are used explicitly schools see positive impact on students, teachers, and overall climate. The purpose of this literature review is to investigate the implementation, strategies, and sustainability of the PBIS framework and its effects on school climate.
