Active Supervision Center on Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports 8
Nonclassroom Setting Systems Classroom Setting Systems Individual Student Systems School-wide Systems School-wide Positive Behavior Support Systems
Purpose To review critical features & essential practices of active supervision
Examples An elementary school principal found that over 45% of their behavioral incident reports were coming from the playground.
High school assistant principal reports that over 2/3 of behavior incident reports come from “four corners.”
A middle school secretary reported that she was getting at least one neighborhood complaint daily about student behavior on & off school grounds.
An high school nurse lamented that “too many students were asking to use her restroom” during class transitions.
At least 2 times/month, police are called to settle arguments by parents & their children in parking lot
Over 50% of referrals occurring on “buses” during daily transitions.
Nonclassroom Settings Particular times or places where supervision is emphasized –Cafeteria, hallways, playgrounds, bathrooms –Buses & bus loading zones, parking lots –Study halls, library, “free time” –Assemblies, sporting events, dances Where instruction is not available as behavior management tool
5 minute activity Pick 1 problematic nonclassroom setting you have experienced Identify 2-3 features of problem Identify 2-3 possible solutions Report (<1 min.) main features of your example Attention Please 1 Minute Spokesperson
SYSTEMS PRACTICES DATA Supporting Staff Behavior Supporting Decision Making Supporting Student Behavior Positive Behavior Support OUTCOMES Social Competence & Academic Achievement
Classroom v. Nonclassroom Classroom –Teacher directed –Instructionally focused –Small # of predictable students Nonclassroom –Student focused –Social focus –Large # of unpredictable students
Why does everyone need to be involved? Staff outnumbered Adult presence –Prompts desired behavior –Deters problem behavior “Being a good citizen” –Contribute to school climate

SYSTEMS FEATURES School-wide implementation –All staff –Direct teaching 1 st day/week –Regular review, practice, & positive reinforcement Team-based identification, implementation, & evaluation Data-based decision making
15 minute activity Identify problematic nonclassroom setting(s) Identify factors that contribute to problem Review Self-Assessment & identify possible strategies for addressing problem If needed, build into Action Planning Provide 1 minute report Attention Please 1 Minute New Spokesperson
Example Supervisors’ Activities For each item on Self-Assessment share one specific strategy you try to use. Agree on one item that everyone will emphasize next week, & tell all staff. Complete Self-Assessment for one setting next week, & turn into Tom on Friday.
Active Supervision 15 minutes Review “Active Supervision Self- assessment” (8) & discuss possible practices/systems applications to your identified (or new) problem setting Report 2-3 “big ideas” from your team discussion (1 min. reports) Attention Please 1 Minute Spokesperson
