7 Community-wide PBIS Implementation Initiated by discussion of how best to use prevention grant funds by the police department –Unique way to use grant funding…previously for ‘same ole’ programs… –Stopped just throwing out ideas…“youth center”, “basketball with a cop”...needed structure/systems approach Goal is to have same expectations, strategies and “common language” for youth throughout the community Open dialogue between agencies centered around positive solutions and intervention instead of negative consequences

8 Community-wide Process Data: surveyed youth… –turned out there was plenty to do –“Have millions of programs for kids, but if no one shows up, doesn’t have an effect”

23 How to Get Started

24 Identify a community-wide goal/need –Use data –Survey families/community Identify your stakeholders –Who else cares about this goal? –Who can help make an impact on this goal? –What groups/settings support your students when they’re not in school? Showing past collaborations made eligible for more money/grants… “take 1 st step”

25 How to Get Started: Relationships Build on past collaborations, relationships Can be simple…start casual…make initial call! Don’t underestimate the School Board –They influence their neighbors PTO: Can help get families to come to other events…must have ‘buzz’ No rule that you can’t walk right into mayors office…take direct approach Encourage Superintendent to get to know the Mayor…2-way relationship (think…property values!)

26 How to Get Started: Process Build upon existing successes…(i.e. Middle School already doing well w. PBIS) Use data to determine early successes, then share successes with others...local success leads to more –Newspaper –District website –Community Forums –Word of mouth If no systems, no number of ‘practices’ will ever be good enough

27 How to Get Started: Leadership Getting leaders to invest time and energy: Demand it/expect it Start where you’re most likely to get leadership success.. Identify and work towards mutual goals Team without leaders can’t make decisions!

28 Overcoming Challenges Everyone has challenges…weather the course…hang in there! –Ex. Police department implementation didn’t make sense for people at first –Still determining role for Fire Department Importance of Leadership at all levels… –Must have leaders who can make decisions Can’t have too big of a committee or no action Keep holding meetings

29 “It’s in everyone’s best interest that the schools are safe, responsible & respectful.” “Schools are what make a town.” Timothy E. Gillian Village Administrator
