South Region PBIS Updates
We are excited to be the Regional Technical Assistance Coordinators (TACs) in the South Region. To best serve the region, we have designated a primary TAC as your first point of contact within the PBIS Network. We do work as a team, so if your primary TAC is not available please feel free to contact any of the South Regional Technical Assistance Coordinators!
