PBIS Apps is a web application that enables schools implementing positive behavior support in their schools to monitor progress, solicit feedback from teachers and other staff, adjust to local needs and challenges, and identify accomplishments.

School-Wide Information System is a web-based information system used to improve the behavior support in elementary, middle (junior high), and high schools. The purpose of SWIS is to provide school personnel with accurate, timely, and practical information for making decisions about discipline systems. School personnel collect on-going information about discipline events in their school, and enter this information through protected, web-based software. SWIS provides summaries of this information for use in the design of effective behavior support for individual students, groups of students, or the whole student body. With accurate and timely information, school personnel can make decisions that transform schools into safe, orderly, and supportive environments.
