Response to Intervention: The Georgia Student Achievement Pyramid of Interventions Behavior
“If a child doesn’t know how to read, we teach.” “If a child doesn’t know how to swim, we teach.” “If a child doesn’t know how to multiply, we teach.” “If a child doesn’t know how to drive, we teach.” “If a child doesn’t know how to behave, we… …TEACH? or…PUNISH?” “Why can’t we finish the last sentence as automatically as we do the others?” (Herner, 1998)
Tier 1 - Performance Standards The set of social and behavioral skills all students are expected to display.
Tier 1 – Standards Based Learning School-wide Expectations and Rules Consensus of all staff In all school settings for all students – Classrooms, halls, cafeteria, media center, bus Consistently applied Taught to all students Reinforced and acknowledged when displayed
Why Universal Interventions? Challenging behaviors exist in every school If many students are making the same mistake, it is typically the system that needs to change Behavior and academics are intimately connected Proactive and preventive More instructional time=increase student achievement
“Differentiation of instruction including fluid, flexible grouping, multiple means of learning, and demonstration of learning.” Not all students come to school with the same readiness skills – academics & behavior. Some students need multiple means of learning and demonstration of learning.
“Progress monitoring of learning through multiple formative assessments.” Data based decision making School improvement teams review discipline data monthly Interventions are selected based on the data review
Discipline Data Who are the students? What are the behaviors? Where are the behaviors occurring most frequently? What time of day is most problematic? What are the consequences? What teachers refer the most?
Referrals by Location by Behavior Hallway / Breezeway
Referrals by Location by Time Hallway / Breezeway
Referrals by Location by Grade Hallway / Breezeway
Referrals by Grade from 7-8:30 a.m. Hallway / Breezeway
Step 1: Identify and Analyze Identify and analyze the problem Fighting in the hall first thing in the morning by 6 th and 7 th graders Gather additional information Which hallways? Supervision in hallways? Has there been efficient teaching of expectations/rules and procedures? Which students?
Positive Behavior Support Data-driven, team-based framework for establishing a continuum of effective behavioral practices and systems that: 1.Prevents the development or worsening of problem behavior 2.Encourages the teaching and reinforcement of prosocial expectations and behavior across all school settings. (George Sugai, Brandi Simonsen, and Robert Horner, 2008)

Tier One Positive Behavior Support In Alternative Schools
PBS PURPOSE To facilitate positive behavior changes in our students and staff. To reduce the number of inappropriate behaviors occurring across campus by educating students and staff and reinforcing appropriate behaviors.
What PBS looks like at Tier I at TLC The school has a small number of clearly stated expectations for success. Teacher and staff are able to state and use the expectations and interpret them uniformly. Teachers know what behaviors they will manage and what behaviors the office will manage.
