BIP Desk Reference Manual


The Positive Environments, Network of Trainers is a California Positive Behavior Initiative designed to provide information and resources for educators striving to achieve high educational outcomes through the use of proactive positive strategies. Evidence-based positive practices and helpful information is disseminated statewide through this website.

PENT was co-founded by Diana Browning Wright and Deborah Holt, in a joint effort between the Diagnostic Center, Southern California (DCSC) and the Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA).

Our collaborative PENT network is dedicated to increasing academic achievement and overcoming behavioral barriers to success for all students with and without disabilities.

All materials can be reproduced for non-commercial purpose for staff training.

All forms and documents have now been updated to reflect AB 86 which repealed the Title 5, California Code of Regulations, Section 3001(d), (e), (f), (g), and (ab) and Section 3052, formerly known as the “Hughes Bill” regulations.
