The successful implementation of any initiative in education lies in the creation of a district system of support, and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is no exception. School systems with the greatest momentum in sustaining PBIS frameworks have district level PBIS teams with representatives from each building that meet regularly. These teams discuss simple topics such as branding and garnering community support to more complex issues like funding and policy making.
In the PBIS District Training with the DSFI, the SST offers a flipped model of instruction, where participants will complete learning modules independently and then attend virtual Community of Practice sessions to grow in district knowledge of monitoring and implementing district-wide PBIS frameworks. The sessions will be based on the nine sections of the District Systems Fidelity Inventory (DSFI). Like the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) at the building level, the DSFI enumerates specific steps to move the needle toward systematic district implementation of PBIS frameworks.
After the October 13 introductory meeting, participants will be asked to complete learning modules before each Community of Practice session. The modules will include short videos, articles, and questions from the DSFI to consider. Morning and afternoon Community of Practice sessions with identical content will be held to best meet scheduling needs. Team members will also be asked to meet at least 3 times outside of the sessions to create an action plan of next steps to address areas of concern. After attending the series this year, participants will be asked to complete a formal DSFI by May of 2024.
