Tier I Team Training

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.


Who Should Attend

A team representative of your school community and who are committed to implementing behavior supports school-wide. The team should include school administrator, Tier I school-based coach, and typically four to six team members (e.g.: general education teacher(s), special education teacher, family representative, clinical staff, etc). District-based PBIS coaches are also encouraged to participate with school teams to support fidelity and sustainability of implementation throughout the district.

  • Compose a Tier I team to lead implementation and monitoring of school-wide behavior supports
  • Define behavioral expectations for your school
  • Establish a plan for teaching behavior and social emotional skills
  • Define system for handling problem behaviors
  • Establish an acknowledgement system for your school
