1PBIS New Team Member Training: Establishing a Foundation for Collaboration and Operation Presenters: PBIS District Team Day OneEstablishing a Foundation for Collaboration and Operation – PBIS requires some systems change efforts. Efforts take time and your team’s ability to effectively collaborate, identify team member roles, distribute responsibility evenly and work efficiently towards goals are important in setting your foundation for success. Teams must realize that they are a leadership team and have the ability to make positive changes in the school.********************************************************Observation Notes:PBS is a problem solving process. There are set components, but they may be implemented differently depending on your school.Looking at a system change approach takes time. It can take 3-5 years - - not to implement and see changes in student behavior, but to see outcome change. We’re talking about the philosophical change.Our first step is establishing the foundation. This is the most important element in building PBS.Our first question is how to take this back to your school and bring others on board.

12POP Quiz Who is all needed to make PBIS effective at your school? TeachersAdministratorsParentsSafetyAll of the above
13What is PBIS?Technical answer: (PBIS) provides an operational framework for improving student academic and behavior outcomes . More importantly, PBIS is NOT a curriculum, intervention, or practice, but IS a decision making framework that guides selection, integration, and implementation of the best scientifically-based academic and behavioral practices and interventions for improving student academic and behavior outcomes for all students.
14Write on sticky note, post What is PBIS?What are 1-2 things you want to know more about with PBIS?Write on sticky note, post4 minutes
15Okay, what does that really mean? Expectations for everyone in all settingsShows students how to achieve these expectations (so they don’t have to guess)Acknowledges students displaying positive behaviorsWork closer with students in need of greater interventionsEveryone working together proactivelyBuild a community in your building
16Key Concepts PBIS is a framework, not a program Programs can fit within the frameworkSchool-wide systems and practices support students and staffBuilding relationships is criticalPBIS focuses on being proactive, not reactiveAll staff members play a key role in the climate of the buildingInterventions are different than punishments
17Tiered System of Support Tier 1: All StudentsUniversalTier 2: One Adult/ Multiple StudentsTier 3: Multiple Adults/ One StudentA simple way to think about the tiers

20Elements: Tier 1 Universal Establish a team to carry on the PBIS efforts in the buildingEstablish and maintain faculty commitmentDevelop 3-5 school wide expectationsCreate area specific rules (posters in area)Create classroom specific expectation matrix (varies by grade/ subject)Create a T-Chart of Classroom vs. Office Managed BehaviorsEstablish a recognition/acknowledgement systemCreate lesson plans and system for teaching behaviorAnalyze Big 5 Data MonthlyContinue to use PBIS language and practices throughout building
23Being a Team Allows you to: Look at old issues from a NEW perspectiveExplore the validity of “first impressions”Stimulate creativityThink outside-the-boxEstablishing a Foundation for Collaboration and Operation (i.e., Team) is the first stepSchools need this to sustain long-term changePurpose of the activity was not to find the number of squares, but to see the difference between what you can do individually and as a team.It takes longer as a group but you get more out of itAlso you see that some people tended to lead the discussion, some took notes = team members began taking on roles.The point is that you were able to see new perspectives from teaming.You can see how other people are viewing things.
24Have you ever been a part of this team? No agenda is preparedMeeting starts lateNo time schedule has been set for the meetingNo one is preparedNo facilitator is identifiedNo one agrees on anythingNo action plan is developedEveryone is off taskNegative tone throughout the meetingIt’s easy for meetings to develop one or more of these problems.Actively plan to avoid these problems.

26A School-based PBIS Team PBIS team should remain small (3-8 members)Consider representatives that include: administration, general education teachers, special education teachers, guidance, specials teachers, parents…Consider Core Team vs. Peripheral TeamYou are considered the core team…You meet regularly and make decisions.The team shouldn't be too big… too much conversation.. harder to come to consensus…Think of a core team versus a peripheral team. The core team attends to the standard team responsibilities. The peripheral team is a resource for the core team.The peripheral team may attend meetings every other month.May want to include students (example: when developing reward system), reg. ed. teachers, special ed. teachers, paraprofessionals etc. on the peripheral team.Over time the team tends to change – keep the numbers small.Team members should represent a range of grades, not necessarily from each grade level, but should represent the entire staff.Thinking about your school team… who should be invited. Remember SAC folks are involved with financial decisions.
27School PBIS Team Tasks Develop the school-wide PBIS action plan Monitor behavior dataHold regular team meetings (at least monthly)Maintain communication with staff and coachEvaluate progressReport outcomes to Administrator and CoachTeam responsibilitiesThe main responsibility is to support collection and dissemination of information to faculty and staffIn today’s training you'll be developing an action plan…go to tab called action plan.. Go to 2nd page… look at Critical Elements… this is what you’ll develop in these 3 days…Remember, a copy of your action plan will be collected at the end of this 3-day trainingOnce these critical elements are in place you will have PBS in your school. Then you will need to maintain the process, monitor and adjust, but the main responsibility of the team at this point is to develop the action plan.Plan for regular meetings, at least 1 per month. In the beginning you may need to meet more frequently.Make sure that everything you do as a leadership team involves getting and providing information and feedback from the school.

37School-based PBIS Team Meets Frequently During initial planning, teams may need to meet more oftenTeam should meet at least once a month to:Analyze existing dataMake changes to the existing databaseProblem-solve solutions to critical issuesBegin to outline actions for the developmentof a planMonthly meeting usually last about one hourInitially PBS teams may need to meet more frequently, but by the end of school year meetings will probably be down to once per month.Data drives your meeting… but the first couple of meetings will probably focus on elements of the action plan, fine tuning it.
38Enhancing Meeting Success Administrator identifies how to free staff time for participation on the PBIS TeamClearly schedule meeting dates and timesAdministrators remind staff of the significant impact and ultimate successIn all team meetings there should be structure:Look in misc. section These pages provide suggestions for:Team meeting agenda/minutesMeeting evaluation (how are we doing)Graphs suggested by SWISHelpful Hints..

Do your team meetings action plan?Do your team meetings just plan acknowledgements?Do you have roles and responsibilities within the meetings?DiscussWhat have you implemented within your team meetings that have made the meetings more effective?
43Reflection Questions Action Planning Answer these questions about your SW-PBIS team, you will have 5 minutes:About what percent of your staff have bought into PBIS?What did or did not work to get faculty buy-in?What does your team need to do to get more faculty input on the critical elements?How does your team share data with the faculty?What strategies might help you get greater faculty buy-in?
44Reflection Questions Referral Process Answer these questions about your PBIS team, you will have 5 minutes:Has your PBIS team developed a coherent discipline referral process that includes procedures for handling minor, major and crisis situations?Has the discipline referral process been reviewed with all faculty this school year?Are all faculty following the current discipline referral process? Explain why or why not.If faculty are not following the process what do you think needs to be done so that all faculty are following it? Do you think the team needs to review and possible revise the process? If yes, what suggestions do you have to make it better?
45Team Discussion Discuss: What are some strategies to get more staff involved in your PBIS?How will we make it easy for staff to implement?When will overview be provided to all staff?
46Sharing Data with Staff Behavior data should be shared with staff monthlyStaff meetingBulletin board in staff loungesUpdate staff on school-wide PBISAcknowledgementsFocus behaviors/ areasProvide behavior lessons to be taught
47Increasing staff buy-in quick tips Have a PBIS calendar of all events and lessons completed in advanceProvide simple classroom strategies for behavior managementHave all staff involved in T-Chart creationUse data to show the needBuild more knowledge of PBISStaff acknowledgements (coincide with student acknowledgements)
48Faculty FeedbackTeam should get feedback / thoughts from staff members on a regular basisA formalized survey each semesterA suggestion boxPass out note cards at a staff meetingGet input onWhat acknowledgements work (staff and students)?How are the lessons going?What behaviors are you seeing that aren’t in the data?
49ActivityHow can you increase excitement of PBIS in more staff members? How can you get more staff members involved in PBIS around the school and in their classroom?4 minutes
50Summary PBIS is a framework and not a program PBIS directs everything you do within a buildingTeam should represent entire staffMeetings should be data-driven with decisions being madeInvolve all staff members every month in PBIS updates and data* Inconsistency and lack of direction can impede overall school improvement!
