Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a systematic approach that employs a proactive model that teaches expected behaviors, reinforces and recognizes students who are able to model these behaviors, and has systems in place to support students who present with more challenging behaviors. This workshop focuses on building a school-wide team to ensure students are consistently getting the same message, regardless of the settings they are in or the adults with whom they come into contact. Participants will engage with videos and hands-on activities to gain competency in this new approach to behavior management. Teams will work to develop school-wide behavioral expectations, design what those expectations look, feel, and sound like, and brainstorm a school-wide system of recognizing positive behaviors. An action plan of immediate next steps will be created so that participants can begin the implementation process as soon as they return to school.
