PBIS/SoC Positive Behavior Intervention & Support Systems of Care Minnie Kidd Dreama McCoy Regional Coordinators
What is PBIS?
What is Positive Behavior Intervention & Support? Positive Behavioral Support (PBIS) refers to the application of positive behavioral interventions and systems to achieve socially important behavior change. (OSEP, 1999)
What is Positive Behavior Intervention & Support? PBIS fosters a positive climate to promote behavioral and academic success.
PBIS in North Carolina By the end of 07-08: 102 of 115 LEAs had at least one school participating 691 school teams trained in at least Module One Legislature approved full-time PBIS consultant
Why should schools and communities be interested in PBIS?
Why PBIS? Problems are increasing. Typical responses are unclear, inconsistent, & reactive. Schools implementing comprehensive PBIS see long-term changes. Reduction of office discipline referrals & suspensions Increased staff morale and retention Positive school climates and increased student achievement
Three years after leaving school, 70% of antisocial youth have been arrested (Walker, Colvin, & Ramsey, 1995). 82% of crimes are committed by people who have dropped out of school (APA Commission on Youth Violence, 1993). The stability of aggression over a decade is very high; about the same as IQ (Walker et al., 1995). What happens if we do not intervene?
Why Positive Behavior Intervention & Support?
Children with Emotional & Behavioral Disorders (2% identified EC) Lower grades; fail more courses & exams Held back more often Lower graduation rates Arrested more often (40%/1 yr – 60%/5yrs) More frequently placed in restrictive educational environments More time in the Juvenile Justice System
Common School Struggles Teachers leaving? Low staff and/or student morale? Poor attendance? High retention rates? High number of office referrals & suspensions? No clear vision? No ownership of the school? Every man for himself? Losing Instructional Time to discipline? No significant end of year growth? Multiple fragmented programs/initiatives?
WHATS THE PAYOFF? More instructional time Improved attendance from staff and students Increased student proficiency Increased parent participation and partnerships Improved community involvement and support Lower staff attrition rates
How does PBIS work?
KEYS TO SUCCESSFUL IMPLEMENTATION OF PBIS Administrative Leadership Team-Based Implementation Define Behavioral Expectations Teach Behavioral Expectations Acknowledge & Reward Student & Adult Performance Monitor and Correct Behavioral Errors Use Data for Decision Making Build Parent Collaboration
SYSTEMS PRACTICES DATA Supporting Staff Behavior SupportingDecisionMaking Supporting Student Behavior OUTCOMES PositiveBehaviorIntervention & Support Social Competence & Academic Achievement
Primary Prevention: School-/Classroom- Wide Systems for All Students, Staff, & Settings Secondary Prevention: Specialized Group Systems for Students with At-Risk Behavior Tertiary Prevention: Specialized, Individualized Systems for Students with High-Risk Behavior ~80% of Students ~15% ~5% CONTINUUM OF SCHOOL-WIDE INSTRUCTIONAL & POSITIVE BEHAVIOR SUPPORT
School-wide Prevention Responsive, positive school climate Teaching & supporting appropriate behavior for all Data-based decision making High academic standards, instruction & support Team problem solving Family & community involvement
Secondary Prevention Small group social skills instruction & support Mentoring More structured support for academic and behavior success Instruction in monitoring and re- directing own behavior
Tertiary Prevention & Intervention Individualized, intensive services Designed to meet individual student needs Focus on teaching replacement behavior Accomplished through individual data collection, FBA, BIP

What is System of Care? Child-centered, family focused, and family driven; Community-based; and Culturally competent and responsive.
What is a System of Care? A community-based System of Care is a comprehensive spectrum of services and supports organized into a coordinated network to meet the diverse and changing strengths and needs of children and youth with complex behavioral, educational, social and/or safety needs, and their families.
SoC A System of Care integrates the work of education, juvenile justice, public health, mental health, child welfare, family court, and other helping organizations with families through team work and shared responsibility.
SoC Benefits A way of doing business among professionals, families, and in the community Beneficial to families and communities because it increases community services and resources, reduces unnecessary separation of children from their families, and actively supports the development of healthy and productive families
SoC Benefits contd Supported by research and the accepted national best practice model for delivering services and supports to children with complex needs and their families in a way that they can understand, starting where they are
What is the Purpose? The purpose of a system of care is to make comprehensive, flexible and effective support available for children, youth and families throughout the community and through this assistance make the community a better place to live (Franz, 1999).
Principles of System of Care: Interagency Collaboration Individualized Strengths-Based Care Cultural Competence Child and Family Involvement Community-Based Services Accountability

Why should we use a System of Care?
System of Care as Best Practice According to the Center for Mental Health Services, SAMHSA, Federal DHHS*: The System of Care offers the best possible programmatic, fiscal, and organizational context for implementing and sustaining evidenced-based interventions... (*CMHS, 2004, Children s Service Initiative)
NC SoC Handbook Revised Jan.06 Goal: To help families help their children succeed at home, in school, and in the community SoC is considered the best way of planning, developing and delivering services to children and their families Fundamentally changing the relationships families have to the service system at every level
SoC Handbook More than 200,000 children under the age of 18 in NC have a serious and emotional disturbance These children are at substantially greater risk for school dropout, school expulsion, drug or alcohol abuse, unplanned teen pregnancy and conviction of crimes
SoC Handbook NCs Mental Health systems continues to undergo reform and reorganization to better serve families and children through SoC approach
SoC Handbook NC Blueprint for Change (Division of MH, DD, SAS State MH Plan 2003, Chapter 3) and 2003 Child MH Plan (DMH, DD, SAS) identified core requirements and/or values for the future provision of childrens mental health services
Core Requirements Families will have meaningful input in all aspects of the planning, delivery, and evaluation of service Families and professionals working together maximize the benefits of the services rendered Utilize best practice models that include family support, family education, and family training Create support systems to ensure family participation
SoC Handbook SoC is based on a set of values and principals for local services and supports in communities across our state SoC is not just a philosophy; it is a researched-based framework that helps communities and states put the philosophy into action by building structures and resources that make SoC work for children and their families
SoC Handbook SoC looks different in each community it is based on the strength and needs of the families in those communities
Outcomes of SoC Implementation Increase in school attendance and children finishing school Safer schools Decrease in home, school, and community violence Decrease out of home placement Decrease in abuse and neglect Decrease in juvenile arrests Creation of a child and family friendly SoC Increase power of Advocacy for children and family issues in the political system at the state and local level Stronger children, youth, families and communities
What does PBIS have to do with SoC?
PBIS & Systems of Care PBIS aligns schools with SoC values PBIS creates a school culture and climate where staff work together as a team to support positive student behavior PBIS results in improved outcomes for all students PBIS helps schools engage families and the community
