Using Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS/ PB4L) to Make Schools more Effective and Equitable Rob Horner University of Oregon Currently using PBIS? Elem, Middle, High?
Goals Define purpose of PBIS Define core features of PBIS Define how PBIS helps schools be more effective learning environments Define how PBIS helps schools be more equitable learning environments.
Why SWPBIS/ PB4L? The fundamental purpose of SWPBIS is to make schools more effective and equitable learning environments. Predictable Consistent Positive Safe
Main Messages Supporting social behavior is central to achieving academic gains. School-wide PB4L is an evidence-based practice for building a positive social culture that will promote both social and academic success. Implementation of any evidence-based practice requires a more coordinated focus than typically expected. PBIS/PB4L will improve the equity within schools.
Main Messages PBIS makes schools more effective, equitable, efficient. Effective (academic, behavior) Equitable (all students succeed) Efficient (time, cost)

What is School-wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS/PB4L)? School-wide PBIS/ PB4L is: o A multi-tiered framework for establishing the social culture and behavioral supports needed for a school to achieve behavioral and academic outcomes for all students. Evidence-based features of SWPBIS/ PB4L o Prevention o Define and teach positive social expectations o Acknowledge positive behavior o Arrange consistent consequences for problem behavior o On-going collection and use of data for decision-making o Continuum of intensive, individual intervention supports. o Implementation of the systems that support effective practices
Establishing a School-wide, Positive Social Culture Common Vision/Values Common Language Common Experience
School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (SWPBIS/ PB4L) The social culture of a school matters. A continuum of supports that begins with the whole school and extends to intensive, wraparound support for individual students and their families. Effective practices with the systems needed for high fidelity and sustainability Multiple tiers of intensity
Primary Prevention: School-/Classroom- Wide Systems for All Students, Staff, & Settings Secondary Prevention: Specialized Group Systems for Students with At- Risk Behavior Tertiary Prevention: Specialized Individualized Systems for Students with High-Risk Behavior ~80% of Students ~15% ~5% SCHOOL-WIDE POSITIVE BEHAVIOR SUPPORT/ PB4L 27 Main Ideas: 1.Invest in prevention first 2.Multiple tiers of support intensity 3.Early/rapid access to support
Remember that the multiple tiers of support refer to our SUPPORT not Students. Avoid creating a new disability labeling system. Reading Behavior Math Health

Using PBIS to Achieve Quality, Equity and Efficiency QUALITY : Using what works; Linking Academic and Behavior Supports o North Carolina (valued outcomes) o Michigan (behavior and literacy supports) o Commitment to Fidelity Measures o Building functional logic/ theory/ practice (Sanford) EQUITY : Making schools work for all o Scott Ross o Russ Skiba o Vincent, Cartledge, May & Tobin o Bully prevention EFFICIENCY : Working Smarter: Building implementation science into large scale adoption. o Using teacher and student time better. o Dean Fixsen/ Oregon Dept of Education
Define School-wide Expectations for Social Behavior Identify 3-5 Expectations Short statements Positive Statements (what to do, not what to avoid doing) Memorable Examples: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe, Be Kind, Be a Friend, Be-there-be-ready, Hands and feet to self, Respect self, others, property, Do your best, Follow directions of adults
Tier I: PBIS Team Expectations Rewards Corrective Consequences Classroom Systems Family Bully Prevention Decision System
Classroom Systems Classroom Expectations Classroom Routines Effective Instruction Opportunities to Respond Constructive Feedback Active Supervision High rate of positives Functional Consequences Physical Space matches Function See work of Brandi Simonson Tim Lewis Terry Scott
Designing Cla ssroom Routines RoutineSchool-wide Expectations Signal Entering ClassWalk in, sit down, start work Instruction on board Obtaining class attention Orient to teacher, be quiet ? Getting Help during seat work ??
Families Partnership with families What three things could most families do that would make the biggest positive impact on student educational success? Options Show interest (ask how the day went) Help with homework (time, place, support, knowing) Communication with school (events, needs, what is working, and what is not working) Families
Academic Engagement Team Activity: How can your school engage families: 1)What are 1-3 reasonable things families can do that would make a difference? 2)What would be the best way to share this information with families? How would we know if we had been successful?
Bully Prevention Scott Ross
Ross, S. W., & Horner, R. H. (2009). Bully prevention in positive behavior support. Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 42(4), Three Schools Six students identified for high rates of verbal and physical aggression toward others. Whole school implementation of SWPBIS Whole school addition of Stop-Walk-Talk Direct observation of problem behavior on playground. 28

Discipline Disproportionality A central element affecting the equity and effectiveness of education
Elementary Schools: Compare proportion of students enrolled to proportion of students with an ODR % Enrolled % with an ODR Risk Ratio = 1.81
Preliminary Evidence: When PBIS is linked to reduction in ODRs does reduction occur for students from all ethnic groups? From: Vincent, Cartledge, May & Tobin, 2009
Recommendations for Addressing Discipline Disproportionality in Education Kent McIntosh, Erik J. Girvan, Robert H. Horner, & Keith Smolkowski 1. Effective Instruction Curriculum, Explicit presentation, Opportunity to respond, Timely and contingent feedback 2. Implement PBIS 3. Collect and use disaggregated discipline data 4. Address “explicit bias” with clear policies, regulations and accountability. 5. Address “implicit bias” with neutralizing routines. Identify times / situations when untended bias may occur Teach self-direction routines when these times/situations occur
Measuring Fidelity of PBIS Very important for initial and sustained implementation To date… too many tools New Fidelity Tool …. Combination of Best Features o Strong technical validity o Done with Coach and Team o Can be done in 15 min per Tier o Can be used for initial assessment, progress monitoring and identification of exemplars o Results in action plan
Available October 2014 at or orgwww.fieldtest.pbisassessment. org or Other PBIS Fidelity Measures School-wide Evaluation Tool (SET) Team Implementation Checklist (TIC) Benchmarks of Quality (BoQ) Strong Technical Adequacy 15 min per tier Done with Coach and Team Useful for: Initial Assessment Progress Monitoring (by Tier) Identification of Exemplars

Summary PBIS is a framework for improving the effectiveness and equity of schools PBIS is evidence-based Building a cohesive and clear social culture matters Invest in prevention Use data to BOTH guide implementation and improve student outcomes.
