PBIS Tier I Training
Aug 3 @ 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based practice that puts structures in place that help staff determine behavior expectations, teach the expectations directly, and develop positive and negative consequences.

This PBIS Tier I training will provide participants with the essential elements for introducing and implementing PBIS. Topics covered include:

  • exploring school-wide attitudes regarding behavior
  • evaluating what is currently in place for behavior intervention
  • choosing next steps

Attendee Expectations

Participants will:

  • discover why their school/district needs PBIS
  • begin to develop a new PBIS matrix (or modify an existing matrix)
    • take first steps toward a district-wide discipline referral form
