Funding Options

Although the cost for implementing PBIS in schools is relatively small when compared to the benefits, we frequently get questions about how schools can pay for PBIS training and support. Schools may use the following funding sources:

  • Coordinated Early Intervening Services (CEIS) funds for secondary and tertiary (training, coaching, personnel, staff release time, travel costs, supplies, and materials)
  • Federal IDEA grant funds for supports for students with disabilities (PBIS costs incurred by special education personnel)
  • Local funds (any costs associated with implementing PBIS)
  • Title I Schoolwide Activities Set-Aside
