Important Information

Regarding Professional Development and Technical Assistance for PBIS in Colorado

The Colorado Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) initiative has provided training and technical assistance to districts and schools across the state for over twelve years.  Throughout this tenure, the Office of Special Education Programs State Personnel Development Grant (SPDG) has predominantly funded this work.  Unfortunately, the initiative is not currently funded by these dollars. In response to this funding gap, the CO PBIS initiative is unable to provide professional development (PD) and technical assistance (TA) as it has in years past. In the interim, districts and schools will have limited PD and TA opportunities.  

Professional Development: Professional development will be provided by the initiative. Please refer to the highlighted professional development opportunities below as well as the Calendar link on the left. This professional development calendar provides the complete offerings from the Office of Learning Supports, which includes both behavior and academic opportunities for professional learning. 

Technical Assistance: Due to resources, limited TA will be provided during the 2015-16 school year. Requests for TA can be made at

Additionally: Resources can be found within this website as well as the website for the National TA Center for PBIS at More information is available through our Universal and Targeted Wikispaces at and

Thank you for your continued interest and your dedication to providing positive learning environment for our students in Colorado.
