What are you doing? What are you suppose to be doing? Are you doing it? What are you going to do about it? Note: Can’t deal with behavior and attitude at the same time, deal with behavior first.

16 Questions for your staff
Can you teach all Students? Can you teach in all schools? (with the same results) “Anyone can steer a ship when the sea is calm.” Pubilius Syrus

In layman’s terms: Develops a positive culture in your school Addresses prevention Teach Social Skills

18 Positive Behavioral Instructional Support--PBiS
Is not a curriculum PBIS is a collaborative process for assessment and development of effective interventions. PBIS emphasizes the use of prevention, teaching and reinforcement-based strategies to achieve meaningful outcomes. PBIS strives to build effective environments, in which positive behavior is more effective than problem behavior.

19 A proactive systems approach to school-wide discipline (not a curriculum) designed to be responsive to current social and educational challenges. A process that focuses on prevention and instruction. A systems approach to promoting positive student and staff behavior, that incorporate empirically validated practices.

20 Why PBIS? Problems in schools are increasing.
Typical responses are inefficient. Schools implementing comprehensive PBIS see long-term changes. 1. Reduction of office discipline referrals 2. Reduction in suspensions 3. Increased staff morale and retention 4. Positive school climates Move beyond punishment—teach, monitor, reward appropriate behaviors before relying on punishment

21 Steps Total Staff Commitment
Create School wide Expectations and Procedures Clearly defined consequences for correcting rule-breaking behaviors and procedures for rewarding appropriate behaviors An instructional component for teaching students self-control, expected behaviors, and social skills strategies.
