What 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.

Okay, what does that really mean? Expectations for everyone in all settings Shows students how to achieve these expectations (so they don’t have to guess) Acknowledges students displaying positive behaviors Work closer with students in need of greater interventions Everyone working together proactively Build a community in your building

At your table Create a mock-agenda for your next meeting Be sure to cover: – Analyzing behavior data – Choose focus areas/ behaviors – Behavior lessons – Adjustments to acknowledgement system – Address any system/ procedures issues – Any PBIS Communications needed?
Action Plan Reflect: – Do your team meetings look at data? – Do your team meetings action plan? – Do your team meetings just plan acknowledgements? – Do you have roles and responsibilities within the meetings? Discuss – What have you implemented within your team meetings that have made the meetings more effective?
Reflection Questions Action Planning Answer these questions about your SW-PBIS team, you will have 5 minutes: 1.About what percent of your staff have bought into PBIS? 2.What did or did not work to get faculty buy-in? 3.What does your team need to do to get more faculty input on the critical elements? 4.How does your team share data with the faculty? 5.What strategies might help you get greater faculty buy- in?
Reflection Questions Referral Process Answer these questions about your PBIS team, you will have 5 minutes: 1.Has your PBIS team developed a coherent discipline referral process that includes procedures for handling minor, major and crisis situations? 2.Has the discipline referral process been reviewed with all faculty this school year? 3.Are all faculty following the current discipline referral process? Explain why or why not. 4.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?
Team 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?
Sharing Data with Staff Behavior data should be shared with staff monthly – Staff meeting – Bulletin board in staff lounge – Emails Update staff on school-wide PBIS – Acknowledgements – Focus behaviors/ areas – Provide behavior lessons to be taught
Increasing staff buy-in quick tips Have a PBIS calendar of all events and lessons completed in advance Provide simple classroom strategies for behavior management Have all staff involved in T-Chart creation Use data to show the need Build more knowledge of PBIS Staff acknowledgements (coincide with student acknowledgements)
Faculty Feedback Team should get feedback / thoughts from staff members on a regular basis – A formalized survey each semester – A suggestion box – Pass out note cards at a staff meeting Get input on – What acknowledgements work (staff and students)? – How are the lessons going? – What behaviors are you seeing that aren’t in the data?
Activity How 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 http://timer.onlineclock.net/
Summary PBIS is a framework and not a program PBIS directs everything you do within a building Team should represent entire staff Meetings should be data-driven with decisions being made Involve all staff members every month in PBIS updates and data * Inconsistency and lack of direction can impede overall school improvement!
