28 Make the News Caught doing good: PBIS goes community-wide …PBIS …does is make sure those consequences include rewards for good behavior as well as punishments for behaving badly.... Caught doing good: PBIS goes community-wide Snapshot of the schools "We want to take this district from good to great, Snapshot of the schools PBIS taps business "Oh, sure. Recognizing kids for being good is really going to work." PBIS taps business

29 How to Get Started: Relationships Build on past collaborations, relationships Can be simple…start casual…make initial call! Dont underestimate the School Board They influence their neighbors PTO: Can help get families come to other events…must have buzz No rule that you cant walk right into mayors office…take direct approach Encourage Superintendent to get to know the Mayor…2-way relationship (think…property values!)

30 How to Get Started: Leadership Getting leaders to buy-in: Demand it/expect it Start where youre most likely to get leadership success.. Identify and work towards mutual goals Team without leaders cant make decisions!
