A Native American boy was talking with his grandfather. “What do think about the world situation?” he asked. The grandfather replied, “I feel like wolves are fighting in my heart. One is full of anger and hatred; the other is full of love , forgiveness, and peace.” “Which one will win?” asked the boy. To which the grandfather replied, “the one I feed.”


Behavior Matters

  • Approximately one third of students have emotional problems that act as a barrier to their benefiting fully from instruction, resulting in poor academic progress.
  • Teachers are forced to expend time and resources on behavioral issues that take away from classroom effectiveness and the academic instruction of all students.
  • Recent updates to state and federal special education guidelines are changing the way schools are expected to support students with problem behavior and the scope of interventions are expanding to meet behavioral needs.

Why are Behavior Systems Overlooked?

  • Multiple Initiatives Compete for Time
  • School Systems Not Designed to Address Behavior
  • Frequency and Severity of Behavior Problems Can
  • Overwhelm Schools
  • Public Demand High for Academic Accountability

Obstacles to Implementing Behavioral Systems

  • Belief: “Why do good things for bad kids?”
  • Emphasis on Academics
  • Failure to make the behavior and academic
  • connection
  • The blame game

a mandate for change rti and pbis
A Mandate for Change – RTI and PBIS
  • Legislative mandates to Implement RTI and PBIS (NCLB/IDEA)
  • Most states have adopted RTI and PBIS as best practices for early intervention
  • Federal grants and entitlements now requiring evidence of implementation
what is positive behavior support
What is Positive Behavior Support?

Addresses the behavioral needs of all students through a tiered intervention model

Develops a foundation of prevention practices so interventions/interactions with students become more effective

Changes the behavior of adults in order to change the behavior of students

Teaches, encourages, and rewards desirable student behaviors

Assists in creating a positive school climate

Uses Data to Create a Systems Approach to Behavior Management

what is response to intervention
What is Response To Intervention
  • Addresses the academic and behavioral needs of all students through a tiered intervention model
  • Uses research based, scientifically validated instructional and behavioral interventions
  • Uses data to make decisions about interventions
  • Monitors student progress to inform instructional and behavioral decisions
  • Uses assessment to 1) screen children 2) determine what children can and cannot do in specific skill areas 3) monitor progress to determine if academic or behavioral interventions are working.

Review360 Gen Ed– Braiding RTI and PBIS

Implementing intensive services and progress monitoring for individual students

Tier 1

Tier 3


Developing interventions and progress monitoring individual

and/or groups of students at risk

Tier 2

5-10% of Students

Developing proactive school-wide and classroom management practices and screening to identify students at risk

80-90% of Students

the importance of tier 1
The Importance of Tier 1
  • Provides a foundation of proactive and preventative best practices at the classroom and schoolwide level
  • Builds capacity for ongoing school improvement
  • Aligns behavioral and instructional expectations
  • When implemented with fidelity, reduces the likelihood of students requiring tier 2 and 3 interventions.
  • Improves the quality of teaching and learning
for discussion
For Discussion….

What are your existing district or school practices in aligning your behavioral expectations and behavioral interventions for students?

What are the commonly held beliefs about student behavior in your school or district (spoken or unspoken)?

a shift in thinking
A Shift in Thinking

Shifting from the problem is within the child to the problem is due to a breakdown in the system or the teaching and learning interaction.

Shifting away from categorical or exclusionary thinking to solving the problems of individual students.

Shifting from a placement or punishment orientation to a teaching and supporting orientation.

Shifting from determining punishment, pathology or disability to determining what needs to be done for the student.

pbis vs traditional approach
PBIS vs. Traditional Approach
  • Positive Behavior Support:
  • Replaces undesired behavior with a new behavior or skill
  • Alters environments
  • Teaches appropriate skills
  • Rewards appropriate
  • behavior

Traditional Discipline:

  • Focuses on the student’s problem behavior
  • Stops undesirable behavior through the use of punishment

Reasons to Implement A Behavior Support System

1. Academic and behavioral goals are not being met.

2. There are high rates of problem behaviors, leading to a

loss of instructional time.

3. Problem behaviors are not handled consistently at the

school level.

4. Families and the community are dissatisfied with the

school’s current behavior policies.

5. Teachers are concerned about student behavior.
