1 School-wide Positive Behavior Support Professional Development Blueprint Tim Lewis, Ph.D University of Missouri Susan Barrett Shepard-Pratt Health Systems OSEP Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports

2 Why a Professional Development Blueprint? Need for competent – State, region, & district Coordinators – Trainers – Coaches (technical assistance) Avoid an “accrediting” role/process Goal across all PBIS center activities to build local capacity Center had some hand in over 15,000 schools… There are over 100,000 schools in the U.S.

3 PD Blueprint… Lists and describe minimum core readiness, skill, and performance competencies for SWPBS trainers. Lists and describe minimum outcome competencies for SWPBS implementation by (a) school staff, (b) school leadership teams, and (c) coaching personnel. Provides self-assessment guides for monitoring training and coaching progress. Provides evaluation procedures for assessing training and coaching fidelity and integrity. Recommends schedules and sequence for training and coaching activities. Assumes that trainers have implementation experience and fluency with SWPBS practices and systems. Focuses on the school, district/region, and state as the context for sustained training implementation and support.

4 PD Blueprint Doesn’t Dictate specific training scripts or lesson plans. Require specific training examples. Provide an exhaustive list of training topics or delivery mechanisms. Align content with other behavior support, school climate or discipline, or social behavior curricula. Teach SWPBS content to trainers.


6 Build parallel systemic processes 1.Provide school/district teams with a process to address the presenting challenge (SWPBS) 2.Develop a parallel process for districts/states to support school implementation and continue to expand with integrity ( District /State Leadership Team)

7 District Initiative District Coordinator / Trainer PBS Coaches/ Trainers School Teams

8 Most Training Guskey (1986, 2000) Nearly every major work on the topic of staff development has emphasized the failings of these efforts. Majority of staff development fail to consider two factors: "What motivates teachers to engage in staff development, and the process by which change in teachers typically takes place" (p. 6). Considerations: – Change is a slow, difficult, gradual process; – Teachers need to receive regular feedback on student learning outcomes; and – Continued support and follow-up are necessary after initial training.

9 PD to Change Staff Behavior Staff Development Change in Teacher Practice Change in Student Outcomes Change in Teacher Beliefs Guskey, 1986

10 Blueprint Logic - Training Assess and map training to school team “readiness” Training targets focus on specific steps in building a continuum of behavioral supports All training should be outcome based with measurable goals (along with tool to measure) Trainers must master and demonstrate competency on essential features

11 Most Technical Assistance Relies on expert model Case by case Contingent upon funding streams and/or student eligibility Often poor fit within an instructional model

12 Rethinking Technical Assistance Moving from a case by case expert model to building expertise in the school Focus of all TA is on teaching the school team to solve problems or address challenges for themselves Shift from providing answers to asking questions Shift from developing plans to prompting plan development Shift from being viewed as the expert to being viewed as a facilitator Will not replace need for specialist, re-focus all to building capacity

13 Blueprint Logic – Technical Assistance Key competencies and skill sets of TA providers provided Basic logic of SW-PBS problem solving adhered to across all related activities (data- practices –systems) Tools and measures to assist in process School Team(s) are target of all TA

17 Building the Blue Print

18 Phases of Implementation Exploration Installation Initial Implementation Full Implementation Innovation Sustainability 2 – 4 Years Fixsen, Naoom, Blase, Friedman, & Wallace, 2005


20 Trainers Train more folks than you think you need Levels of skill development Organized around Phases of Implementation – Team Member – Team Leader – Coach – Trainer – Coach Coordinator – Regional/State Coordinator


22 Coaching within SWPBS Implementation Defining the Role Internal vs External Selecting Coaches Training and support for coaches Assessing Impact

23 Outcomes of Coaching Fluency with trained skills Adaptation of trained concepts/skills to local contexts and challenges And new challenges that arise Rapid redirection from miss-applications Increased fidelity of overall implementation Improved sustainability Most often due to ability to increase coaching intensity at critical points in time.

24 Building District and State Training Plans

26 How to organize it all? Phases of Implementation Implementers Blueprint – Evaluation Blueprint – Professional Development Blueprint District Implementation Workbook School Team Workbooks – Tier 1, Tier 2, CICO, Tier 3 State, District, School Examples

28 Stages of Implementation Exploration/Ado ption Installation Initial Implementation Full Implementation Innovation and Sustainability Establish Leadership Teams, Set Up Data Systems Development Commitment Provide Significant Support to Implementers Embedding within Standard Practice Improvements: Increase Efficiency and Effectiveness Should we do it? Doing it right Doing it better

29 Training Outcomes Related to Training Components Training Outcomes Training Components Knowledge of Content Skill Implementation Classroom Application Presentation/ Lecture Plus Demonstration Plus Practice Plus Coaching/ Admin Support Data Feedback 10% 5% 0% 30% 20% 0% 60% 60% 5% 95% 95% 95% Joyce & Showers, 2002

30 Trainer Competencies Readiness Structures Training Day-Content (Changing and Evolving) Implementation Knowledge- Systems, Data, Practice – What resources to you have to get new content? – What structures should be in place prior to event? – What are the best ways to move through the material during the training event? What should the day(s) look like? – How are your local schools implementing?

31 Data Base PBS Surveys, PBS Eval Local data base Progress Report Annual Report Marketing and Dissemination Presentations Newsletters Evaluation Questions Template Tools PD System: Training Curriculum Administrator and Coaching

32 TOT Model: Building A System to Support Trainers Curriculum- Scope and Sequence (VA), Course Structure (IL), Competencies (NH) OR, FL UConn Learner Content Fluent (Systems, Data, Practices) Co-Trainer (Practice at Implementation Site) Trainer

33 Virginia: Training Capacity Special Thanks to: Florida, Illinois and Michigan VA ESD Project Bob Gable, Steve Tonelson, Irene Walker Bolton, Kim Yanek Uses Phases to organize Competencies and Outcomes identified at each Phase and Tier Access to Trainer for Fluency, TA, Performance Feedback – Monthly meetings – Guidebook help provide common language, role and consistency

34 “Innovation Neutral” process Any innovation/initiative A neutral process for implementing any innovation with fidelity Professional development Working smarter with limited resources – Aligning what you have to organize supports 34

35 Rationale for TOT Scaling/Demand Fidelity Support/Community of Learners Accountability

36 Expectations Completion of Application/Interview Process – Grandfather clause Agreement to attend all Facilitator Meetings Completion of Scope and Sequence Assignments Openness to feedback from assigned mentor Engage in professional learning community – Provide feedback, engage in continuous improvement

37 Performance Assessment Scope and Sequence – Clearly defined expectations Assessment tools for Trainers (Michigan) – Presentation Rubric – Preparedness Rubric – Content Rubric for each training event Data Systems Practices Outcomes
