D ATA E NTRY & A NALYSIS Data collection Referral forms entered into SWIS for both Minor and Major behaviors We emphasize the importance of having “clean” data that tells the story of our students Staff regularly review behavior definitions, and the correct process of office discipline referrals (Intensive Interventions) Data analysis The PBIS team meet 2 times a month to review data The data is shared with our faculty and staff through SWIS Big 7 report
T HE STORY THE DATA TELLS We use the School Wide Information System to input our data for students that have office discipline referrals. With this system, we can review data by time, location, problem behavior, grade level, day of week, student, and per day per month. After the data is reviewed by the PPBIS team, then interventions are put into place for problem areas, times, locations, etc.

E XPANDING L ESSON P LANNING BEYOND THE TEAM Lesson Plan Challenge Each Homeroom Class was given the task of taking an area on our Matrix and creating a lesson plan to show how to Be Safe, Respectful, and Responsible in that location. The homerooms then presented the lesson to the student body and were judged based on a rubric that was given out prior to the challenge. The winning homeroom was treated to a special lunch and a sign over the door until the next challenge was announced. This promoted learning across the grade levels and further teaching of the expectations.
