Why Coaching? The old models are not as effective.
Problem Statement 1 “We give schools strategies & systems for developing more positive, effective, & caring school & classroom climates, but implementation is not accurate, consistent, or durable. Schools & teams need more than training.”
Problem Statement 2 ( Fixen, Naoom, Blasé, Friedman, & Wallace, 2005, p. 39) “training by itself does not result in positive implementation outcomes (changes in practitioner behavior in the clinical setting) or intervention outcomes (benefits to consumers)”
Important Functions of Coaches Coaches provide team start-up support Coaches facilitate team sustainability and accountability –Coaches provide technical assistance and problem solving –Coaches provide positive reinforcement to team members –Coaches deliver prompts (i.e., function as “positive nags”) Coaches improve and increase public relations and communications Coaches are linked to a support network across schools Coaches are linked to leadership, trainers and teams Coaches allow for local facilitation As coaches build their own skills, they provide increased behavioral capacity
Who are Coaches? Personnel & resources organized to facilitate, assist, maintain, & adapt local school training implementation efforts Coaching is set of responsibilities, actions, & activities….not person
Roles of a Coach Communicate Content Knowledge Facilitate Coaching Roles Share advanced content with team Share information at faculty meetings Local PBS expert Positive “nag” Link to resources (e.g., www.pbis.org) Team meetings Activities at training events Implementation
A reminder you’ll see throughout to help us remember the role.

How will you Fill Your Role… …as you are increasing your fluency with the content, your team members will still view you as an “expert” It would be wise to familiarize yourself with the resources available to you and your team
Identify: Where do you go to get an overview of all the steps involved in implementing SWPBS? Which tools will help you establish your team and conduct efficient team meetings? What tool would you use to survey your school staff? Where do you go to find supporting evidence for implementing SWPBS? In addition to the resources in your notebook, remember www.pbis.org
