Behavior Support and Special Programs
Positive Behavior Intervention and Support Initiative
(Kincaid, Childs, Wallace & Blasé, 2007)
Use surveys to establish buy-in. (Kaster, 2005; George & Martinez, 2007)
Determine how PBIS implementation will address:
The School Improvement Plan is written every summer using Baldridge School Improvement Model. Training is facilitated through the district’s Accountability department, with coaching from Curriculum and Instruction personnel. PBIS Schools use data from the Accountability department and the SET Feedback Report from the spring, which is provided by the district coordinator.
Fidelity time frame is set up yearly by PBIS Coaches and LEA Coordinator.
Strategies for Building Staff Buy In (Feuerborn, 2011)
Build a case for change
Build administrative supports
Build on existing capacity
Nature vs. nurture
Build a shared vision
Build opportunities for dialogue
Anticipate the resource needs of the team, long-term and short-term. (Kaster, 2005; Bohanon-Edmonson, Flannery, Eber & Sugai, 2005)
Coach team to using evaluations to action plan, rather than as a “score.”
Clearly define majors/minors across the LEA and train staff members on consistent reporting.
Start conversation about moving from punitive systems of consequences to pyramids of interventions.
