PBIS: Beyond the Code of Conduct Presenters: Tricia McCarthy and Kasi Klingbiel
What Has Been Schools “Common” Response to Behavior Problems? n Clamp down on Rule violators n Review Rules and Code of Conduct n Extend continuum of aversive consequences n Improve consistency for use of punishments n Establish “bottom line”, Get Tough
Negative Teaching of Behavior Don’t Wear Hats Don’t Run in Hallways Don’t Be Rude Don’t Yell Don’t Arrive Late Deliver Consequences
Science of behavior has taught us that students…. Are NOT born with “bad behaviors” Do NOT learn better behaviors when presented with aversive consequences...Do learn better ways of behaving by being taught directly & receiving positive feedback
PBIS “BIG IDEAS” Establish and sustain a positive school climate Maximize academic engagement & achievement Minimize rates of rule violating behavior Explicit instruction and modeling of expected behaviors in specific settings (cafeteria, bathrooms, etc.) Encourage Respectful, Responsible, and Safe behaviors Emphasize importance of data-based decision making
PBIS is NOT… A program or a curriculum It IS a team-based process for systemic problem solving, planning, and evaluation. It is an approach to creating an environment within which school-based teams of educators are trained: –Systems change –Effective behavior management principles and practices; and –Applications of research-validated instruction and management practices.
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% Continuum of School-Wide Instructional & Positive Behavior Support
Classroom Accountability Classroom Managed –Language/cursing –Preparedness –Calling out –Throwing things –Work refusal –Minor dishonesty –Inappropriate touching –Tone/attitude –Inappropriate comments –Sleeping –Refusal to follow directions –Verbal insults Office Managed –Fighting/aggression –Weapons –Physical contact –Aggressive language threats –Harassment –Theft –Chronic minor violations
Teacher Accountability n Teaching the 3 B’s –Teach behaviors in each of the areas (hallways, classrooms, cafeteria, assembly, bus, bathroom) –Create your own rules of what the 3 B’s look like in each class using a matrix What does it look like and sound like? –This should be done in related arts as well
Teacher Accountability Minor Incident Reports (MIRs) Stop lights in classroom (preK-5) –Restart on green after lunch/half way through day Teachers Follow Hierarchy –All students start on green –1 individual student warning = no movement –2nd individual warning = move to yellow –3rd individual warning = move to red = MIR –4th = move to another teacher (<20 min.) –5th = office referral After 3 unreturned MIRs = phone call home Retain teacher copy of MIR for report card grade
Student Accountability Every day students will record where they end up at end of each day –1st-2nd grades record on a calendar (color day) –3rd-5th record in agenda book (write at bottom) If color differs from AM and PM, the area can be split
Parent Accountability Parents expected to check their child’s agenda book every night Parents asked to return MIRs as soon as possible Parents told at the beginning of the school year (B2SN) that the number of MIRs their child receives not only affects their participation in Beaver Clubs but also their child’s grades.
