About PBIS Maryland

PBIS Maryland was created to assist educational systems in Maryland to build the capacity to adopt and sustain a multi-tiered framework for implementing evidence based practices to increase success of all students.  PBIS Maryland was established in 1999 as a collaborative partnership between the Maryland State Department of Education, Johns Hopkins University, Sheppard Pratt, and local educational systems. 

Since the 2022-2023 school year, local education systems, with support from Sheppard Pratt and Johns Hopkins University,  have continued to leverage the multi-tiered framework of PBIS to support their efforts to support student social, emotional, behavioral, and mental health wellbeing.
