School counselors are tasked with contributing to a safe and preventative school climate serving students' academic, career, and social/emotional needs through comprehensive school counseling program implementation. Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) prioritizes a positive school climate, is widely implemented in the United States, and has been recommended by influential educational stakeholders. School counselors can assist with PBIS implementation; however, no thorough description exists of the alignment between comprehensive school counseling programs and PBIS. In this article, the authors conceptualize this alignment, aiming to increase school counselors' and stakeholders' understanding of and advocacy for this alignment to maximize school counselors' efforts. The article provides school counseling implications and recommendations.
