2-Day Training Options

Tuesday, July 25th - Wednesday, July 26th

Tier I Team Training*

This session will establish systems, data use, and practices at the Tier I level. School teams will learn and action plan around implementation of the core features of Tier I PBIS, including: leadership team composition and operating procedures; defining, teaching, and acknowledging behavioral expectations; classroom procedures; involving faculty, students, and families; data-based decision making; and monitoring for fidelity of implementation. Implementing Tier I with fidelity is associated with a strong increase in the pro-social culture and climate of the building, and a decrease in office discipline referrals and other negative behaviors. 

* Tier I Team training is for full school teams including the building administrator, a designated school-based PBIS coach, and typically four to six additional Tier I team members (faculty, staff representatives; family representatives; clinical staff, etc.).  District-based PBIS coaches are also encouraged to participate with school teams.

During this interactive training, your team will learn the features of Tier I PBIS as well as have time to develop an action plan for implementation. The training is aligned to the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI), which will support your team in having a solid foundation for the features of Tier I and ability to continue to assess implementation using TFI. Click here for complete description and downloadable materials. 

Tier II Team Training 

This training session is designed to help teams and schools develop the capacity for an effective and efficient continuum of Tier II supports for youth. School teams will be supported in the establishment of a Secondary Systems Planning Team, learning how to use universal data to target groups of students in need of Tier II support and assessing the fidelity of interventions/supports provided. Teams will explore the critical features of Tier II interventions and how they are applied to the Check-In-Check Out (CICO) intervention and the systems and data necessary for successful installation. Teams will be supported in developing their CICO system including their DPR, referral, acknowledgement system, and plan for progress monitoring. Click here for complete description and downloadable materials.

Trauma within PBIS Framework

Understanding how trauma impacts performance in the educational setting can change how we interact with our most vulnerable youth. In this session, we will discuss how to use the data from a national public health study to help staff develop a more informed view of working with all youth, ultimately creating a trauma-informed environment. In this session, participants will also learn about the short and long-term impact of trauma in the educational setting and strategies which can be immediately implemented in the classroom.

Tier II Booster
This booster is designed for school teams who have already been trained in Tier 2 Team Training and want another dose of the same concepts taught in Tier 2. (This training is not intended to be a full Tier 2 training, but rather an opportunity for folks who were already trained 2+ years ago, have a new team member on the Tier 2 team, or simply want to hear the latest and greatest messages again). This Tier 2 Booster is aligned with the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) and will give teams the opportunity to self assess in each of the 13 components of Tier 2. Teams will have some time to work on creating an action plan aligned with each component and will hopefully leave with a concrete action plan to improve their implementation.

Wraparound/RENEW Follow-up

This session is specifically designed for Wraparound facilitators who have already been trained in Wraparound and are currently developing individualized plans for students and families. In this session we will use live student/family plans to dig deeper and gain a greater understanding of how to do coffee chats, create teams around youth and families, create action plans, etc. more effectively. We will utilize the 10 principles of Tier 3 work to guide the day and will highlight the live student/family plans to identify roadblocks and barriers to the process and identify was around them. Please come to this session with a live student/family wraparound plan, and make sure all identifying information is taken off of your document. These plans will be used to facilitate the learning process throughout the day. Click here for complete description and downloadable materials.

Participants will also learn about coaching and team facilitation roles, use of behavioral data for decision-making, and progress-monitoring for fidelity of implementation and student outcomes. School leaders may participate in this training as the third day follow-up to team training or in advance of team training (e.g.: Leaders participate in Summer Institute and Team participates in Fall Institute).
