NH Center for Effective Behavioral Supports (NH CEBIS)
NH CEBIS at SERESC was established by the NHDOE in 2002 as a response to statewide priorities for (a) increasing the capacity of schools to create more positive, productive, and preventative learning environments, (2) decreasing rates of suspension, expulsions and dropping out of school, (3) increasing academic achievement, and (4) improving meaningful partnerships between schools and families. The Center’s mission is to foster the development of safe, caring, respectful schools where learning is a primary focus, and all members of the community, including students with emotional or behavioral disorders, are valued and experience success and joy each day. NH CEBIS is committed to the well-being of all NH’s Children.
The New Hampshire Center for Effective Behavioral Interventions and Supports (NH CEBIS) provides support to schools, preschools, individuals and families to promote the development of positive culture and productive relationships. We do this by providing workshops, comprehensive programs and training resources and by fostering the development of effective teams and collaborative regional workgroups.
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)
PBIS forms the core of everything we do. PBIS is predicated on the belief that schools can be positive, enjoyable places to teach and learn for all students when an appropriate behavioral climate has been created. Establishing such a climate involves working with systems to support teachers, working with teachers to practice effective prevention and response strategies and working with data to make effective decisions and accurately gauge progress.
