1 Have you ever been a part of this team? No agenda is preparedMeeting starts lateNo time schedule has been set for the meetingNo one is preparedNo facilitator is identifiedNo one agrees on anythingNo action plan is developedEveryone is off taskNegative tone throughout the meetingIt’s easy for meetings to develop one or more of these problems.Actively plan to avoid these problems.
2 A PBIS Leadership TeamSchool Administrative Team must be committed to school-wide PBIS and actively participate on the teamPBIS team should remain small (6-10 members)Consider representatives that include: administration, general education teachers, special education teachers, guidance, specials teachers, paraprofessionals, custodian, parents…You are considered the core team…You meet regularly and make decisions.The team shouldn't be too big… too much conversation.. harder to come to consensus…May want to include students (example: when developing reward system), reg. ed. teachers, special ed. teachers, paraprofessionals etc. on the peripheral team.Over time the team tends to change – keep the numbers small.Team members should represent a range of grades, not necessarily from each grade level, but should represent the entire staff.Thinking about your school team… who should be invited.

4 Coaches’ Roles & Responsibilities May be district-level person (external) who can move across schools or person who works on-site (internal) – or bothIs familiar with the school-wide processFacilitates team throughout the process (insures critical elements are in place)Attends all trainings/meetings with their school-based teamsIs an active and involved team member, but not the Team LeaderIs the main contact person for the school-based teamReports to district level staffCoach-liaison between school and district wide facilitator (smaller districts - may only be a coach)Different than the team leader who facilitates meeting-will help to make sure goals are being obtainedThey are expected to attend your team meetings-make sure to arrange meetings with them so they can attend
5 Administration’s Roles and Responsibilities ALL administrators are encouraged to participate in the processAdministrator should play an active role in the school- wide PBIS change processAdministrators should actively communicate their commitment to the processAdministrator should be familiar with school’s current data and reporting systemIf a principal is not committed to the change process, it is unwise to move forward in the processFacilitators may want to encourage all administrators to participate on the school-based PBIS Team or may determine that one administrator is adequate.If only one administrator is actively participating, it is essential that the facilitator meet with the administration between meetings to guide communication and follow-through of action plans.In addition, the sole administrator should be one who intercepts many of the school’s discipline referrals (i.e., has experience with the school’s current system of discipline operations).If this administrator is not involved with the team or committed to the change process, it is unwise to attempt to go further with developing the PBIS school-wide plan.The involved administrators should also have a long-term commitment to the change process and to the school.Constantly changing administrative support will negatively impact the implementation of a school-wide positive behavior support plan.
