Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a framework to support schools in adopting and organizing evidence-based positive behavioral interventions and supports. PBIS’s data-driven process provides a foundation for positive, respectful, and equitable schools that results in improved academic and behavioral outcomes for all students.
Tier 1: School-wide PBIS Site Team Training
The school-wide PBIS site team training will guide school teams through the development and implementation of a school-wide PBIS. The school team must include a site administrator and must include representatives from across the school site, including grade span or department representatives, special education teachers, counselor or social workers, and site-based coaches. High school teams should consider including a student team member. The training sequence includes:
- Roles and responsibilities for effective teaming
- Development of school-wide behavior expectations, lesson plans, and teaching schedule
- Creating school-wide acknowledgment system
- Classroom PBIS
Tier 2: Targeted Interventions
The Targeted Interventions team training will guide school teams through the development and implementation of Tier 2 targeted interventions and Check In Check Out (CICO). The school team must include a site administrator, special education team representative (e.g. psychologist, teacher, etc.), specialty teacher (e.g. TOSA, library teacher, physical education, art, reading intervention), and one additional general education staff member. High school teams should consider including a student team member. The training sequence includes:
- Development of Check in / Check out “CICO” system and other Tier 2 interventions
- Student identification process and participation criteria
- Data-based decision making and problem-solving
Tier 3: Tertiary Systems and Functional Behavior Support
The tertiary systems and functional behavior support team training will guide district teams through the development and implementation of a function-based approach to addressing behavior. The district team must include a site administrator, MFT, LCSW, or mental health coordinator/point person, and behavior specialist or special education staff member with behavioral expertise. The training sequence includes:
- Data-based decision-making problem solving and progress monitoring
- Re-design and improvement of learning and teaching environments
- Develop and implement a function-based approach to addressing behavior and how behavior supports are used in successful PBIS implementation
- Team functioning
