Purposes of Presentation To provide an overview of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) To review Wohlwend’s Matrix and school- wide behavior expectations To review our procedures for rewards and consequences
What Is Positive Behavior Support? PBS is a broad range of systemic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes while preventing problem behavior. OSEP Technical Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports www.pbis.org
In Other Words… School-wide Positive Behavior Support is a district or school’s process for teaching expected social and behavioral skills so the focus can be on teaching and learning.
Principles That Guide SW-PBS Focus of discipline is on academic & behavior success Is for all students, all staff and all settings Emphasizes prevention Uses research-validated practices Is coordinated by a SWPBS team Emphasizes an instructional approach Uses data to guide decisions
Wohlwend’s PBIS Components Universal procedures Proactive to prevent problem behavior Data Fluid Implementation on social skills lessons A lot of teaching Consistency throughout the school
Goal: Reduce Harm Specialized Individual Systems for Students with High-Risk Goal: Reverse Harm Specialized Group Systems for Students At-Risk Goal: Prevent Harm School/Classroom-Wide Systems for All Students, Staff, & Settings AcademicBehavioral Social Comprehensive, Integrated, Three-Tier Model of Prevention (Lane, Kalberg, & Menzies, 2009) Tertiary Prevention (Tier 3) Secondary Prevention (Tier 2) Primary Prevention (Tier 1) ≈ ≈ ≈ PBIS Framework Positive Action; Social Skills Improvement System
Wohlwend’s Mission Statement To educate students by creating a nurturing community that promotes lifelong learning and character.
Wohlwend’s Vision Statement We demonstrate high levels of student achievement. We have a safe, productive, and positive learning environment. We are a community that builds partnerships among students, parents, colleagues, and the neighborhood community.
Positive School-wide Expectations Be respectful Be responsible Be safe
Clear Set of Behavior Expectations = School-wide Expectations Matrix A comprehensive list of expectations Agreed upon expectations of all students & all staff Based on data and behavioral concerns Becomes basis for Wohlwend’s skills curriculum Format for consistent language to use with students See Matrix!!!
What Are Procedures & Routines? Procedures explain the accepted process for carrying out a specific activity, such as: walking in the hallway, riding the bus, using the playground, attending an assembly, going to the restroom. Procedures form routines that help students meet expectations stated in the rules
The Science of Behavior Students are not born with bad behaviors Students do not learn better ways of behaving when given aversive consequences To learn better ways of behaving, students must be directly taught the replacement behaviors To retain new behaviors, students must be given specific, positive feedback and opportunities to practice in a variety of settings
Teaching Non-Classroom Procedures & Routines Review and/ or practice steps prior to going to the setting In the setting Review steps Have one student model while others watch and give feedback Have all students practice
Components of an Effective Lesson Plan 1. Tell 2. Show 3. Practice 4. Feedback 5. Reteach
How to Effectively Encourage? Clear and specific Sincere and appropriate for student’s age Avoid comparison/competition between children
When to Effectively Encourage? Contingent on desired behavior Applied immediately Frequent encouragement during acquisition when students are learning a skill
What to Encourage Expectations and rules from your school-wide expectations matrix.
Classroom Reinforcement System Verbal specific feedback Classroom reward system (individual to each teacher) Wildcat Way tickets (to reinforce lessons and school-wide matrix)
School-wide Reinforcement System Paws 25 paws for a classroom party Once the class earns 25 paws the class will earn a golden paw for the bulletin board in the lobby Once every class earns their golden paw the entire school will earn a school-wide celebration
School-wide Reinforcement System (continued) Behavior Honor Roll 0, 1 or 2 teacher referral and no office referrals equals honor roll Students will receive their honor roll certificate at the end of each grading period
Wohlwend Reinforcement System Students that earn 2 out of 3 honor roll certificates will be able to take part in the twice yearly celebrations In 2013-14 we celebrated with “Polar Express Day” and our Suson Park Buddy Field Trips
Examples of Specific, Positive Verbal Feedback “Thank you for walking in the hallway, that was being safe.” “Way to go, you had your homework finished and you turned it in on time, that is being responsible.” “You are using an inside voice in the cafeteria, that is respectful.” “You are in the room with needed materials before the tardy bell rings, that is being responsible.”
Wohlwend Tier 2 Supports More intense services for students who are not responding to the school-wide universals SRSS survey identifies students (completed 3X a year) Interventions include: Paws Pals Mentor Program, Check-in / Check-out, etc.
