ObjectiveOur Goal Identify functions of a District Leadership Team Provide an overview of the 2010 SW PBIS Implementation Blueprint & Self-Assessment & Sample Action Plans Share snapshots and examples of DLT’s work, products, & perspectives Participants will learn the purpose and functions of a PBIS District Leadership Team (DLT) and be able to apply this information in their district teams. Participants will learn how PIBS DLTs use the National PBIS Blueprint to be able to develop a three to five year action plan. Participants will know lessons learned from experienced and beginning PBIS DLT and be able to apply this information to their work.
By the end of this session you will be able to … Describe potential PBIS DLT members and functions Complete a PBIS Implementation and Self- Assessment Describe possible next steps for your district Share your structure for district leadership to support PBIS/multi-tiered system What would you like to walk away with from this session?
Implementation Challenge Arranging for accurate, sustained, & generalized local implementation of evidence-based solution Establishing systems level infrastructure to support scaled implementation of evidence- based solution Selecting effective, efficient, relevant, durable evidence-based solutions George Sugai, March 2010
Stages of ImplementationFocusStageDescription Exploration/ Adoption Decision regarding commitment to adopting the program/practices and supporting successful implementation. InstallationSet up infrastructure so that successful implementation can take place and be supported. Establish team and data systems, conduct audit, develop plan. Initial Implementation Try out the practices, work out details, learn and improve before expanding to other contexts. ElaborationExpand the program/practices to other locations, individuals, times- adjust from learning in initial implementation. Continuous Improvement/ Regeneration Make it easier, more efficient. Embed within current practices. Work to do it right! Work to do it better! Should we do it!

SWPBS Implementation Blueprint 2010
LEADERSHIP TEAM 1. Leadership Team is configured to address multi-school (district) and/or multi- district (region, state) leadership and coordination. The SWPBS Implementation and Planning Self-Assessment is focused on district, regional, and/or state level leadership team planning. However, its features have applications to any large scale practice adoption and sustained/scaled implementation. The Leadership Team’s primary function is to engage in leadership and coordination functions, which support and sustain accurate implementation of a continuum of evidence-based SWPBS practices. Its activities are configured around following SWPBS Implementation Blueprint features: (a) capacity building for training, coaching, evaluation, and coordination; (b) administrative participation for political support, visibility, funding, and policy; and (c) demonstrations of school and district implementation. The overriding mission or purpose of this team is to provide overall leadership related to assessing, developing, implementing, managing, and evaluating a state, regional, and/or district-level comprehensive system of SWPBS for all students. This team is responsible for the coordination of training, coaching, and evaluation activities related to SWPBS implementation. This team develops a 3-5 year action plan to guide its capacity building and coordination activities and to achieve the mission or purpose of the SWPBS implementation effort.

Observe with a purpose PBIS District Level Team Meeting Observation 1.What district level system pieces did you hear them talk about? 2. What comparisons might you make between this meeting and your own? 3. What learning do you want to take with you as you plan your next PBIS DLT meeting? 3. Blueprint Self-Assessment

To the greatest extent possible, leadership should strive toward integration of teams and committees that have common behavior-related mission What committees/work groups can we eliminate? What committees/work groups can we combine? What committees/work groups need to be supported for improved outcomes and sustained functioning? What would an organizational chart look like that shows the relationship between each of our recommended committees/work groups? Working Smarter Not Harder Worksheet 9. Decision making authority
Add 1 new initiative; Take 2 away! How might we help teams to make these decisions? What should they pay attention to?

Lessons Learned Maintain commitment from key players in the school district District Action plan is a working document Use data for decision-making Reductions in Office Discipline Referrals (ODRs) Sustained implementation at criterion Increased academic gains Increased perception that school is safe Saved Instructional Time Student Outcomes for Tier 2/3 Attendance
Lessons Learned cont. Build internal capacity for professional development and coaching Build reciprocal communication structures including to/from cabinet and big ideas to stakeholders Plan for regeneration Integration of Initiatives (Example: CR, RTI, etc.) Integration of special education and general education
Challenges Communication Systems that are reciprocal Data Systems Common protocols, procedures, timelines
