Integrating PBIS Tier II Supports into the SW-PBIS Framework
Starting 4/25/2017 at 09:00 AM until 3:30 PM
• State Support Team 3 - State Support Team 3 Events
Targeted systems of positive behavior support (Tier II small group interventions) are strategies and procedures to support a group of students who display similar needs or behavioral concerns. Tier II interventions are only effective when schools have a strong foundation of universal (Tier I) positive behavioral interventions and support (PBIS). Universal (Tier I) supports means that all students are taught the school-wide rules and expectations, and teachers have proactive classroom management procedures in place.
Tier II interventions are designed for students who demonstrate persistent problem behavior in classroom settings, but not dangerous or violent behaviors. These are students who do not respond well to school-wide behavioral expectations. They are not students with serious chronic behavior problems who require comprehensive individualized interventions.
During this two day series, teams will learn about evidence based Tier II interventions such as the Behavior Education Program/Check In Check Out; mentoring programs such as Check and Connect, social skills clubs, and interest-based clubs (homework, art, chess, sports and/or music). These interventions provide a means for students to actively practice the skills that are being re-taught and reinforced through the intervention. Teams must include a representative from the Tier I School-Wide PBIS Team.
• Analyze building PBIS data to determine their building and student needs.
• Review the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI)
• Create a student nomination/referral system
• Create a building action plan for implementation of evidence-based Tier 2 supports.
It is expected that attendees are in buildings currently implementing PBIS as well as has evidence that PBIS Team Member(s) have attended PBIS Classroom Management and have shared PD information with building staff.
Participants must bring relevant school-wide behavior data
