We believe in safe, positive and inclusive learning environments for all.

The history of NWPBIS Network can be traced to at least 1999 when a small group of professionals in Lane County, OR began meeting as a leadership team to develop strategies for embedding effective behavior support in schools. In 2008 NWPBIS Network was incorporated as a 501(c)3 non profit to provide high quality professional development activities to grow and sustain Schoolwide Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (SWPBIS). Today our SWPBIS training spans across the states of Oregon and Washington and our annual conference attracts delegates from as far as Europe and the Middle East.
