12 Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support  School-wide positive behavior support is a process that: establishes an effective and efficient system to address behavioral issues; utilizes proactive positive education practices that support success; defines, teaches, and supports appropriate behavior of students and staff; and relies on data-based decisions to target interventions and evaluate progress.

13 Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support (cont.)  A process of introducing, modeling, and reinforcing positive behavior which develops a climate in which appropriate behavior is the norm and undesired actions are reduced.  This reduction ultimately results in an increased amount of productive, “on-task” time of instruction for individual students and an environment more conducive to learning for all.  This process also affords schools the ability to focus on children with greatest behavioral needs.

14 Funding for PBIS Administrative Support  Small portion of existing Special Education resources  Smaller portion of Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities – Title IV funds  8(g) grant awarded in  Locals use a variety of funding streams to fund.  171 Schools in 49 LEAs are trained in PBIS and funding in a variety of ways.

17 Strategic Instruction Model (SIM) Principles  All students have equal access to learning  Education is individualized based on learning needs  Most students can successfully be included in general education classes  Students can become independent learners

18 SIM: Yesterday and Today  University of Kansas: Began research in 1978 as the Institute for Research in Learning Disabilities  Currently called the Center for Research on Learning (CRL)  Focus on low achievers, individuals at risk for failure, and individuals with disabilities  Designs interventions to dramatically improve the performance of learners, and develops systems to ensure implementation success

19 SIM in Louisiana  Began professional development and use of the research-based strategies in  Professional development is offered regionally as well as per request by school districts throughout the state.  A cadre of individuals have become certified SIM professional developers and others continue to seek this certification.  An annual institute has been held the past three years.
