This reference guide by Christine Ditrano provides both school wide, as well as classroom strategies for preventing disruptive behavior and enhancing a school's organizational climate using positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS).
The multi-tiered PBIS problem-solving model is proactive and flexible, and provides a unifying framework for all school improvement efforts. It consists of four elements:
1. Data for decision making
2. Measurable Outcomes supported and evaluated by data
3. Practices with evidence that these outcomes are achievable
4. Systems that efficiently and effectively support implementation of these practices
The guide outlines topics such as
PBIS team composition
PBIS team tasks
PBIS and RTI
Establishing a clear set of positive expectations and behaviors
Using a behavioral matrix
Teaching behaviors directly
Using data to make decisions
Developing a school-wide information system (SWIS)
It includes specific strategies for preventing and responding to problem behaviors at tiers 1, 2 and 3, and managing minor problem behaviors in classroom and non-classroom settings.
A succinct yet comprehensive tool for all teachers and administrators!
