Moving School-wide PBIS Forward with Quality, Equity and Efficiency 2011 Tennessee School-wide PBIS State Conf Rob Horner, University of Oregon www.pbis.orgwww.pbis.org www.uoecs.orgwww.uoecs.org
Goals Themes that unite us Focus on Quality Equity Efficiency
The goal of School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (SWPBIS) is to create schools that are more effective learning environments
Themes that Unite Us “Positive behavioral Interventions and supports” is the rational integration of: (a) valued outcomes, (b) behavioral and biomedical science, (c) validated procedures, and (d) systems change … to enhance quality of life, and minimize/prevent problem behaviors. ___________________________________ Ted Carr, Glen Dunlap, Bob Koegel, Jacki Anderson, Wayne Sailor, George Sugai
Functional Behavioral Assessment Environmental Redesign Teaching Social, Academic and Communication Skills Remove Rewards for Problem Behavior Enhance Rewards for Desired Behavior
Continuum of Supports Universal Prevention Identify expectations Teach Monitor Acknowledge Correct Targeted Intervention Check-in, Checkout Social skills training Mentoring Organizational skills Self-monitoring Intensive Intervention Individualized, functional assessment based behavior support plan Procedures and Systems
As You Attend Sessions What are the valued outcomes? What are the specific procedures? What is the science? What are the systems for achieving implementation and sustainability?
Relevance of PBS Today We know more than we do. We need to focus on doing what works. Funding limitations force careful allocation of resources. Large scale use of PBS will mean finding ways to achieve the core features in different ways for different contexts. Different paths to a common goal
Quality (PBIS works) Evidence-based Practices Behavior Support Family Systems Social skills development Equity (PBIS works for all) All Students Race/ Ethnicity Disability Gender Sexual Preference Efficiency (PBIS saves time and money) Procedures and Systems Practical Acceptable Effective/ Better Economical
School-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Build a continuum of supports that begins with the whole school and extends to intensive, wraparound support for individual students and their families.
What is School-wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports? School-wide PBIS is: A systems framework for establishing the social culture and intensive behavioral supports needed for a school to be an effective learning environment for all students. Evidence-based features of SW-PBIS Prevention Define and teach positive social expectations Acknowledge positive behavior Arrange consistent consequences for problem behavior On-going collection and use of data for decision- making Continuum of intensive, individual intervention supports. Implementation of the systems that support effective practices
School-wide PBIS: Outcomes Reduction in problem behavior Improved academic performance Improved perceived school safety Reduction in staff turnover Examining the Evidence Base for School-Wide Positive Behavior Support 2010 Focus on Exceptional Children, 49, (8) 1-14.
Remember that the multiple tiers of support refer to our SUPPORT not Students. Avoid creating a new disability labeling system. Reading Behavior Math Health
Schools adopting SWPBIS by year 14,325 Schools Adopting School-wide PBIS 14,325 Schools Adopting School-wide PBIS

Percentage of Schools using SWPBIS by State 1 state > 60% 5 states > 40% 7 states > 30% 1 state > 60% 5 states > 40% 7 states > 30% Illinois Maryland Delaware Tennessee
Tennessee PBIS Data Approximately 1700 public schools 950,000 students
Using PBIS to Achieve Quality, Equity and Efficiency QUALITY: Using what works; Linking Academic and Behavior Supports Steve Goodman (valued outcomes) Commitment to real implementation –Fidelity –Coaching EQUITY: Making schools work for all Scott Ross Russ Skiba Vincent, Cartledge, May & Tobin Bully prevention EFFICIENCY: Working Smarter; Building implementation science into large scale adoption. Using teacher and student time better. Dean Fixsen/ Oregon Dept of Education
What does a reduction of 850 office referrals and 25 suspensions mean? Kennedy Middle School Savings in Administrative time ODR = 15 min Suspension = 45 min 13,875 minutes 231 hours 29, 8-hour days Savings in Student Instructional time ODR = 45 min Suspension = 216 min 43,650 minutes 728 hours 121 6-hour school days
Oregon Department of Education Proposed Policy on Scale-worthy Practices Dr. Dianna Carrizales-Englemann Not Effective Traditional Promising Scale Worthy
Oregon Department of Education Proposed Policy on Scale-worthy Practices Practice addresses a core educational outcomes (e.g. reading, math, writing, graduation, social behavior) Practice is operationally defined Practice includes formal systems/ strategies for professional development. Practice includes formal system for measuring both fidelity and impact on student outcomes. Practice includes strategies for sustainability and continuous improvement Practices has been proven feasible, socially acceptable and effective in at least 50 schools in Oregon. Practice is documented as evidence-based Dr. Dianna Carrizales-Englemann
Summary PBIS is expanding to an increasingly wide range of settings/ disciplines. We need to remain clear about the themes that unite us SWPBIS is more relevant today than ever because of the promise we bring: Quality, Equity, Efficiency Leave the Conference energized Impressed by the knowledge of your peers Informed about practices and procedures that work Clear about how you will bring the promise of PBIS to your students and families
