Introduction to PBIS - Overview

This one-day introduction will bring educational leaders together to explore critical components of an MTSS framework, also called Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS).  Through the use of activities and dialogue leaders will acquire knowledge and build upon what is already known, to make informed decisions about next steps in improving the systems of support in place to positively impact student behavior.

Participants can expect to leave being able to:

  • Understand the data, systems, and practices of PBIS
  • Build commitment in the school for implementation
  • Understand how to measure the fidelity of PBIS implementation using the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI)
  • Organize data for decision-making and progress monitoring
