Implementation of Evidence-based practices School-wide behavior support Scaling evidence-based practices
Build a continuum of supports that begins with the whole school and extends to intensive, wraparound support for individual students and their families.
School-wide PBIS is: A systems approach for establishing the social culture and behavioral supports needed for a school to be an effective learning environment for all students. Evidence-based features of SWPBIS 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
Use the core messages of the multi-tiered prevention approach: Invest in prevention first Always build multiple levels of support Adapt procedures to fit the local culture SWPBIS is about making schools more effective for ALL children: A commitment to building schools that are responsive to the culture, disabilities, learning needs, and behavior support needs of each child will begin with establishing a predictable, consistent, positive and safe social culture

Instead of focusing on removing students who bully, remove the rewards for bullying.

Investing in a school-wide social culture benefits the adults as well as the students. Scott Ross
Invest in Evidence-based practices Oregon Department of Education Promoting Educational Effectiveness Standard, Emerging, Scale Worthy Ineffective practices Effective, but costly practices
Never stop doing what already works Build from a commitment to student outcomes.
Always look for the smallest change that will produce the largest effect Iterative cycles of change View comprehensive models with skepticism
When adopting something new, define what you will STOP doing to create the resources for the new activity. All current activities can be defended. The issue is priority. The typical school has over a dozen “programs” to address the social behavior of students. Typically none are implemented with fidelity and few with effect. Glenn Latham

Shewhart (1924); Deming (1948); Six-Sigma (1990) Plan – Develop specific things to do Do – Do them (make sure) Study – See what happens Act – Make adjustments Cycle – Do over and over again until the goal is reached (again)
Exploration Installation Initial Implementation Full Implementation Innovation Sustainability Implementation occurs in stages: Fixsen, Naoom, Blase, Friedman, & Wallace, 2005 2 – 4 Years
Scaling up involves implementation of effective practices at a level that the practice becomes the “regular way of operating.”
Making SWPBIS the norm not just an initiative District Policy stating value of student social behavior School Improvement Plan lists social behavior of students as a core goal. Annual Orientation : School-wide academic and behavior supports Hiring : Competence in school-wide behavior support is an expected competence Annual Evaluations: Include competence in school-wide behavior support as part of annual evaluations Professional Development focused on school-wide systems of behavior support Develop data systems for decision-making at the school level (literacy, behavior, math, writing).
Establish School-wide expectations Establish a predictable, consistent, positive social culture Deliver Effective instruction Evidence-based, Multi-tiered intensity Provide Faculty orientation Role of culture, Expectations of school Data collection and continuous review ODR rates, disaggregated by race/ethnicity
Fiscal constraints create opportunities Efficient Improvement through integration and collaboration Implement practices that are evidence-based Implement practices with the systems needed for sustainability and impact. Emphasize measuring for improvement, not just “accountability” or “compliance” Are we doing what we said we would do? Are practices benefiting students?
