Tips for Coaches

Positively PBIS

For Newer Coaches

 A session for newer coaches who are interested in laying the foundation of PBIS and Responsive Classroom in their own school. You will learn about implementation of Social-Emotional Learning by connecting these two programs at both the classroom and whole-school level, which will lead to both student and staff buy-in!

PBIS at a Mid-Sized Public Charter School:

A Journey of Alignment & Flexibility

As a fairly young mid-sized charter school with a unique campus environment, we’ve learned a lot about making PBIS work for us while working to stay true to its philosophical underpinnings and practical requirements. We hope the “growing pains” of our process can help your school on its own unique PBIS journey!


Participants will be provided with an exemplar of how one coach after attending an FBA/BIP training revisited the building's current procedures for developing behavioral intervention plans in effort to make it a more systematized, team-based approach. Methods used to increase staff, student, and family's capacity and participation in FBA/BIP development and implementation will be discussed. Initial challenges, successes, and current status will be shared.

Family Engagement at All 3 Tiers

One school's experience (so far) with using family engagement as a bridge between PBIS and Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF) / Mental Health Integration.

Making It Work at Tier 2 (through the eyes of a high school)

One high school describes their journey through the tiers, starting at Tier 1 and moving into Tier 2. These coaches will share about the challenges faced and thoughts about how they overcame them.

"Wow. I Never Would Have Thought of That!"

Woodland District 50 will motivate, captivate and invigorate you with  creative ways to re-energize your staff and students. Ideas can be used as soon you return with your schools. Be ready to have fun, think outside the triangle and learn something new.
