Who are we? Kent McIntosh Gary Mulry Sheree Garvey Who are you? Roles? PBIS implementation experience? Who are we?
Where are you in implementation process? Adapted from Fixsen & Blase, 2005
Maximizing Your Session Participation Work with your team Consider 4 questions: –Where are we in our implementation? –What do I hope to learn? –What did I learn? –What will I do with what I learned? Consider 4 questions: –Where are we in our implementation? –What do I hope to learn? –What did I learn? –What will I do with what I learned?
1. Share results of research on sustainability of PBIS Kent 2. Provide specific strategies at the district and school levels for enhancing sustainability Gary Sheree Overview Handouts: http://www.pbis.org

In keeping with the new state initiative, this fall we will be implementing an exciting new district initiative of SNI in place of LYI. All Pro-D days previously scheduled for LYI will be rescheduled as staff development for SNI. The $500 for release time and materials for LYI will be discontinued and provided instead for SNI. By the way, you will need to create local SNI teams that meet weekly. The former members of your LYI team would be perfect for this new team. Your new SNI binders will be coming next week. Have a great year!!! Memo To: School Administrators From: District Administrators
What are the most important factors for why schools do and don’t sustain PBIS? Enablers? Barriers? Brainstorming
What do we perceive as the single most important factor for sustainability? McIntosh, K., Predy, L., Upreti, G., Hume, A. E. & Mathews, S. (in press). Perceptions of contextual features related to implementation and sustainability of School-wide Positive Behaviour Support. Journal of Positive Behaviour Interventions.
1. What features were perceived as most and least important for: Initial implementation Sustainability 2. What features were rated as significantly more important for sustainability than for initial implementation? Research Questions
Sample: 257 respondents from 14 US states 49% Elementary 16% Middle 5% High School Average implementation: 6 years (1 to 15) Measure Questionnaire asking respondents to share factors and barriers for: Initial implementation Sustainability Method
1. School administrators actively support PBIS 2. School administrators describes PBIS as a top priority for the school 3. A school administrator regularly attends and participates in PBIS team meetings 4. The PBIS school team is well organized and operates efficiently 5. The school administrators ensure that the PBIS team has regularly scheduled time to meet Most Important Perceived Factors for Sustainability
1. Other initiatives are present that compete with PBIS 2. School personnel are opposed to PBIS because it goes against their personal values 3. High levels of administrator turnover 4. High levels of school personnel turnover 5. High levels of PBIS “champion” turnover Less Important Factors for Sustainability
PBIS is viewed as a part of systems already in use (as opposed to being an “add-on” system)*** PBIS has been integrated into new school or district initiatives*** Parents are actively involved in the PBIS effort (e.g., as part of team or district committee)*** A vast majority of school personnel (80% or more) support PBIS*** More Important to Sustainability than Initial Implementation Note. ***p <.001
School Administrator Support Ok…what do we do when… 1. An administrator is opposed to PBIS? 2. A committed administrator moves on? Most Important Single Perceived Factor?
School Team Maintain the PBIS handbook Document support among staff and stakeholders Collect and share outcomes data Meet with the new administrator District Team Build PBIS into written policy Build PBIS competencies into hiring criteria Develop district coaching capacity Sustaining PBIS through Administrator Turnover (Strickland-Cohen, McIntosh, & Horner, in press)
What is the single strongest predictor of sustainability? McIntosh, K., Mercer, S. H., Hume, A. E., Frank, J. L., Turri, M. G., & Mathews, S. (2013). Factors related to sustained implementation of School-wide Positive Behaviour Support. Exceptional Children, 79, 293-311.
The SUBSIST is a research measure assessing the variables that enhance or prevent sustainability of school-based behavior interventions Two levels of questions School-level variables District-level variables A Measure for Researching Sustainability
School personnel perceive [the practice] as effective in helping them achieve desired outcomes [The practice] has been expanded to other areas (e.g., classrooms, buses, students with intensive needs, parenting workshops) The school team implementing [the practice] is well organized and operates efficiently Data are used for problem solving, decision making and action planning (to make [the practice] more effective and/or efficient) Sample SUBSIST Items
A Measure for School Teams The SUBSIST Checklist A self-assessment and action planning tool for school teams and coaches 50 critical features based on SUBSIST items An integrated action plan for sustainability Available for free at: http://bcpbs.wordpress.com/evaluation

School teams can benefit from training in running meetings and using data Districts can support schools by offering training, coaching, and connections Implications
What are the most important critical features of PBIS for sustainability? Mathews, S., McIntosh, K., Frank, J. L., & May, S. (in press). Critical features predicting sustained implementation of school-wide positive behavior support. Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions.
Research Questions 1. To what extent do school personnel ratings of implementation of PBIS systems significantly predict sustained implementation and levels of problem behavior? 2. Within any statistically significantly predictive PBIS systems, which critical features of these systems significantly predict sustained implementation?
Participants 261 US schools implementing PBIS PBIS Self-Assessment Survey (SAS) completed in 2006-07 Benchmarks of Quality (BoQ) completed in 2009-10 72% of our sample also used SWIS for Office Discipline Referrals (ODRs) for 2009-10 Data available from the Center on PBIS

Four Systems School-wide Non-classroom Classroom Individual PBIS Self-Assessment Survey (Sugai, Horner, & Todd, 2000)
School-wide Non-classroom Classroom Individual Which system best predicts sustained implementation (BoQ) 3 years later?
School-wide Non-classroom Classroom Individual Which system best predicts student outcomes (ODRs) 3 years later?
Expected behaviors defined clearly Problem behaviors defined clearly Expected behaviors taught Expected behaviors acknowledged regularly Consistent consequences CW procedures consistent with SW systems Options exist for instruction Instruction/materials match student ability High rates of academic success Access to assistance and coaching Transitions are efficient Which features best predict sustained implementation?
Limitations Limited variability in BoQ scores Schools that did not report fidelity of implementation data at both points in the 3-year period were not included in the sample
Focus on bringing PBIS into the classroom Consistency with SW systems High rates of acknowledgment for prosocial behavior Focus on quality differentiated instruction across academic domains Student instruction at their level Lessons learned for sustaining School-wide PBIS

“ To build trusting relationships, we need to communicate with the intent to learn from others, not control them. Trust is the glue that makes effective collaboration and teamwork possible. Without trust, people become competitive or defensive, and communication is distorted and unreliable.”

Final Thoughts... The staff member who says, “I just don’t have the time and effort to implement all of these positive behavioral strategies!” Is like the farmer who says, “I just don’t have time to build a fence ~ I am way too busy chasing the cows!!” There is no such thing as resistance to change, it is actually inadequate preparation!
